NICK NEWS WITH LINDA ELLERBEE PRESENTS "WEBSTARS II: MORE KIDS WHO ARE ONLINE HITS" PREMIERING MONDAY DEC. 30, AT 8 P.M. (ET/PT) ON NICKELODEON

Special Features Benjamin "Lil P-Nut" Flores Jr., Star of Nickelodeon's The Haunted Hathaways

NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2013 - Kids who've become online sensations share their stories in the brand-new Nick News with Linda Ellerbee special, "Webstars II: More Kids Who Are Online Hits," premiering Monday, Dec. 30, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. Benjamin "Lil P-Nut" Flores Jr., star of Nickelodeon's hit live-action comedy series, The Haunted Hathaways, is featured in the special discussing how he became a viral hip-hop sensation.

"Our 2009 special, Webstars: The Kids Behind the Hits, looked at kids seeking fame online," says Ellerbee. "Now, just a few years later, the Internet has morphed into the world's biggest stage."

"If I hadn't posted those videos, I still would've been okay," says Memphis, Tenn. native Flores Jr. "But this made me see my dreams."

Sylvia of Auburn, Calif. turns her passion for science and making things into Sylvia's Super Awesome Maker Show. "I want to think that I'm inspiring other girls to do what they want to do and be what they want to be," she says.

15-year-old singer Dwayne Cooke of Camden, N.J. told his story through a song that went viral internationally "It's just been amazing, shocking, spectacular," he says. Cooke's videos have garnered over a million views.

"If I hadn't done the blog and posted videos...I probably would just be cooking at home and I wouldn't have the cookbooks and the radio show," says 13-year-old chef Eliana de Las Casas of New Orleans, La.

13-year-old sisters Brooklyn and Bailey of Dallas, Texas, host the Brooklyn and Bailey web series, where they share fashion ideas, DIY projects and other lifestyle tips with nearly 300,000 weekly viewers. "I just imagine this going on forever," says Brooklyn. "...us just doing the same thing �til we're old and wrinkly."
