Robert “Rob Jay” Jeuitt, a JSU alum and longtime sports broadcaster, has been named interim general manager for JSUTV, in addition to his duties as executive producer of JSU Sports Media.
“It’s a major undertaking, but I am confident that with the support of my talented team, we will elevate JSUTV to the next level,” said Jeuitt, who spent over 20 years as a sports director with WLBT-TV, a local affiliate of NBC.
Earlier this year, the National Sports Media Association named Jeuitt Mississippi Sportcaster of the Year for his coverage of JSU sports.
Dr. Elayne Hayes Anthony, chair of the Department of Journalism and Media Studies, said she is pleased to have Jeuitt as interim.
“He has the expertise and organizational skills needed for the position. He is known throughout this market for his work in broadcasting,” she said. “Additionally, I am very pleased to have an alum of the Department of Journalism and Media Studies in this position.”
Jeuitt said he has plans to boost JSUTV programming and would like to increase viewership.
“We also want to work more with athletics; airing all of the sports teams that the university offers, highlighting shows and more games, and streaming more games, which we’ve already started doing,” he said.
