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 ( 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.
