Media Studies Instructor Takes Home Emmy

B_Jones2011Brad Jones, instructor of broadcast news and anchor of WGHP Fox8 in High Point brought home his second Emmy last week at the 28th NATAS Midsouth Emmy Awards. Jones won for writing and reporting on a two-year community service project called “Share the Harvest.”

“It’s a garden we plant each spring to demonstrate different ideas for growing your own produce,” said Jones. “We donate all of our harvest to local food banks and encourage viewers to do the same, adding fresh locally grown food to the items that will be given to local families.”

In his 25 years in broadcast journalism, Jones has covered everything from hurricanes to the Final Four to the Summer Olympic Games. He has a B.S. from East Tennessee State University and a M.A. from the University of Georgia
