Director of CHS-TV

Broadcast Journalism Instructor

CHS-TV is the broadcast journalism department within Carthage High School. A program with deep roots and a rich heritage, CHS-TV has grown to be one of the top high school broadcast programs in East Texas. With the help of the CISD Education Foundation, CHS-TV is able to create the future broadcasters of America by training them on state of the art film, editing and production equipment. Not only do students receive instruction in all phases of the production process; they have the opportunity to have their works viewed throughout the area on cable channel 19 through Fidelity. CHS-TV is also responsible for the operation and production of the jumbotron at Bulldog Stadium. These students receive hands-on instruction in a live production setting; an opportunity most do not receive until working an internship in college. Students also have the opportunity to participate in UIL Academics as a part of a small film team. These groups script, film and edit short narrative or documentary pieces along with hundreds of other teams from across the state. 

CHS-TV is also responsible for documenting events each year throughout the district. DVD copies of those events are available for purchase. The proceeds from our DVD sales are used to provide college scholarships to graduating seniors entering a communication based program at an accredited college.
