Brand new for 2011…JAG TV

clock January 7, 2011 16:45 by author Jeff Quibell

Brand new for 2011…JAG TV.  Re-structuring the class with a few new members being trained.  The 6 returning veterans had only 2 days to get this together..and they pulled it off.  One little trick from the channel 9 hat…is to keep everything MOVING upbeat…anchor reads, stories, music…etc.  Keeping viewer interests….. Although this one is only 9 minutes long, the Pacing is very good!!!  Keeps your attention….does not drag.  This is a goal for every Jag TV broadcast…..

Please take to time to watch….you will enjoy…Happy Friday everyone…..
