New Year, New Producer!

Jeremy Dunn, Producer, CNN Student News

Jeremy Dunn, Producer, CNN Student News

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Jeremy Dunn, our new CNN Student News producer. A fellow graduate of the University of Georgia, Mr. Dunn brings a great deal of intelligence, enthusiasm and creativity to our program. (What else would you expect from a UGA grad?)

And this isn't Dunn's first time working with the show. As our video editor a couple years ago, he was partially responsible for that embarrassing footage of me dancing on the HLN set.

...which suddenly makes me very concerned about what's coming in the days ahead...

Got any words of wisdom for Mr. Dunn?

Carl Azuz, Anchor

P.S. Jeremy's one of the folks who'll be working behind the scenes; I'll still be the guy bringing you the news.

  21. sean

    hey carl! CNN student news is awsome! but to the point i think obama first should work on economic crisis because if he can get enough money he can then fund for hospitals and jobs. (p.s this is off topic but maby for one CNN student news report you could dress up like a food depending on a report well later!)

    Hey, he's cute! Nice to know that the behind the scenes guys are as cute as Carl. Words of wisdom for Jeremy? "The good life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge." Quote by Bertrand Russell

  26. Gabriel

    Hey there Mr. Dunn welcome to the show and I hope you enjoy working with Carl. Oh yeah be careful, if you dare challenge Carl to a dance contest you better watch out for his mad dance skils!!!! 😀

    I think that all things need a change. Giving CNN Student News a chance to change things without disorder to the station. It should be great to have someone new to work with. You should give a new person a change to grow in to the group, but all people need to be welcomed in to the group. We all have ideas so use them anf grow. It may even get CNN Student News interesting. It is a great show. But Carl you really need to work on the jokes. We have a New Year, New Producer, New U.S. President, and a New Hope for the FUTURE!

    Congrats on a new job. Have fun trying to keep it. And a word of advice, for respect in the workplace, it is better to be feared than loved, if one cannot be both.

    I think its really cool that jeremy dunn was hired as the new producer of the student news. It's always great to get someone who brings some fire to the program, that keeps it going. I think he was a great choice being that he works there and has experience and an education.

    Our class enjoys the daily news, however the "Before You Go" jokes are soooooo corny. Carl can you jazz your sense of humor up? We really like how you report the news.
