The Brain Behind TNN: Mrs. Jones

The+Brain+Behind+TNN%3A+Mrs.+Jones

San Luis Obispo High School Arts teacher Cherie Jones is known around campus for her video production and photography classes. However, few are aware that Jones is also central to helping the Tiger News Network (TNN) run every morning. Expressions interviewed Jones to find out a little more about her role with TNN and their progress this year.

 

Expressions: Where did you gain your expertise in broadcasting?

Arts Teacher Cherie Jones: It has been kind of on the job, but I had a mentor from COETV who helped me design the studio and organize the entire process.

Expressions:  How long has TNN been going?

Jones: The studio was built about five years ago in 2010. Originally it was started as just a electronic media class, which went on for two years. Then we went into broadcasting.

Expressions: How many people work on the set?

Jones: We have three camera people, two to three anchors on air. We have five people running the control room. That’s about ten students that run the program each morning.

Expressions: What is your job on the set?

Jones: I’m kind of like the producer and the director. I double check and make sure all of the material is here; that the scripts are written, that they’re loaded onto the teleprompter, that our media is all loaded onto our computers, and checking all the equipment.

Expressions: What has been your impression of the TNN crew this year?

Jones: They are definitely improving. It’s [mostly] on the job training, so mistakes will happen. Overall, I think they’re doing good.
