Producer

Myke Johns was hired in 2006 to edit for a few hours a week. Since then, he has run through traffic on Marietta Streetridden shotgun in a speeding racecar, and spent many late nights with actors and athletes alike.

His work has won awards from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters and the Georgia APME.
