A student at Corning Community College will be featured on the History Channel this week. J.D. Hungerford will appear on “Forged in Fire” Wednesday night at 9.
Hungerford owns Hungerford’s Blacksmithing and was accepted to be on the show after successfully completing the application process. In each episode, four bladesmiths compete in a three-round elimination contest to forge bladed weapons, with the overall winner receiving 10-THOUSAND dollars and the day’s championship title. He is currently a student in the Mechanical Technology Program at SUNY CCC.
He hopes to find a position that will allow him to use his passing for forging following his graduation.
