Tristan Field-Jones' Summary

Hi there! My name is Tristan Field-Jones and I'm a producer and news announcer for 680 CJOB in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I've been working in radio for four years as a host, producer and reporter. I started at community radio station CKUW as a host before moving to campus radio station KICK-FM where I served as a host, producer and reporter. I began working in commercial radio almost two years ago as an operator. A few months after being hired, I started reading and writing newscasts on the weekend and filling in during weekdays when needed. I also filled in as content producer and news editor during the early morning shift. Additionally, I have experience with television production and live TV as a host, videographer, general operator and production assistant.
