Updated On: Jan 18 2013 06:07:17 PM MST
Jess Antonio attended the University of Arizona where he majored in Communication and minored in Creative Writing. While in Tucson he spent time as both lead and sports anchor for the daily news show on the student-run television channel, UATV.
After graduating, Jess moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where he worked for three seasons with the Phoenix Suns in their production department. He worked closely with the team, conducting interviews, going on shoots and helping to keep the department organized. In September of 2010 he was nominated for a Rocky Mountain Emmy Award for his feature "High Fivin' with Steve Nash and Jess the Intern" which was given national exposure on ESPN and NBATV. He also worked for Cox Communications as a reporter and producer for their charitable show "Doing More For Arizona".
Jess enjoys basketball and football, hiking, and spending time with friends and family. While Jess misses the warm weather of Arizona and being able to closely cheer on his University of Arizona Wildcats, he is excited to be in Bozeman to be part of the KTVM team. He looks forward to meeting great people and covering the stories that are important to them.
