Student News: JEM Students Win Awards, Work for ESPNU and Produce Book
JEM students Chelsea Jensen Koerten, Brooke Fraser and Kristyn Royster won first place for Best TV newscast at the 2013 Tennessee AP Broadcasters Awards in the College Competition category.
On May 5, a group of JEM students worked with ESPNU during what was to be the broadcast of a UT baseball game. The game was rained out; however, the students were still able to work with the ESPNU crew. The students worked at positions such as game producer shadow, camera operator, audio technician, EVS operator, on-air assistant, utility assistant, play-by-play announcer’s shadow, field reporter and SEC Recap reporter.
Tennessee Journalist (tnjn.com) and the Knoxville News Sentinel have agreed to co-produce a book on Butch Jones’ first season as head football coach at the University of Tennessee. The book will be a combination of TNJN and KNS writing, audio, images and video. The book will be produced in three forms: a multimedia iPad book available on the iBookstore; a Kindle version; and a print version available on Amazon. Jennifer Brake, editor-in-chief of TNJN and a former News Sentinel intern, will serve as the book’s editor and will work closely with TNJN and KNS staffers this summer to produce the book. A “1.0” edition of the book should be available in all forms by Aug. 15. A subsequent edition will be completed by the end of the football season for distribution in December.
