October 1972 - PRESENT I have been the T.V. Studio Manager at Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville, Florida. I designed and oversaw the construction of three television studios including the present permanent facility, located at our Northwest campus in P-131. Since 1972 I have managed all aspects of television production for our college. We were one of the pioneers of Distance Learning over Cox Cable Television, and were one of the first College's in Florida to own and operate our own Satellite Earth Station. In 1996 we launched our first real time telecourses between our main campus and two other centers using the latest fiber technology and PictureTel.
