Meet Our Crew


Jake Giles
Editor/Technical Coordinator

“I enjoy getting to see new students come in and get a full experience in producing a television program and getting the opportunity to work in a high stress environment. I think our students have strived in a lot of different circumstances and have been able to create a show that does not look like a student produced program.”

Lucie Ashmore
Show Producer

“Having taken the class twice already, both as audio director and director, seeing is now from a producing standpoint is so different. It has opened my eyes to the true background side of things. I’ve always loved working on the show and getting to come back now as a grad is even better.”

“With [The Roundtable Perspective] being a talk show, without audio, you have nothing. We do live editing and make sure their levels don’t peak and make sure [the audio] sounds good.

“I value teamwork and having the connection with everyone. I have to control the audio and maintain the levels so everything sounds good.”

Sonny Santana

Madison Dinga

Kevin Casey
