WLBT, Gray’s NBC affiliate in Jackson, Miss., announces that Michael A. White, Jr. will be the director of operations for the Gray/WLBT Media Training Center, launching later this year. The center will educate and train students who attend Mississippi colleges and universities, with a focus on Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the state.
The studio, designed by FX Design Group, is equipped with three unique story telling video walls to provide viewers with easy-to-read graphics which are made up of over 41 individual video monitors.
“We don’t do what we do to get awards, but it sure feels good when other people take notice and recognize our time, energy and efforts to tell great stories and make a difference,” says Ted Fortenberry, WBLT’s GM.
