Bryan Jenkins

A genuine enthusiast (bordering on fanatic) of all “things that go”, Bryan Jenkins comprises a complex mixture of passion, intellect, humility, confidence and wonderment. Graduating with a BA in Communications Management from Morehouse College (Atlanta, GA) in 1990, Bryan has proven himself to be a well known and respected professional in the area of television production in the U.S. and abroad.

For more than 20 years Bryan served as the Production Manager at Clark Atlanta University’s Cable Access Television station (CAU-TV), where, daily, he has the opportunity to direct and manage several live and taped productions. As Production Manager he has trained several well-respected media professionals in the industry today. Currently, Bryan serves as the General Manager at CAU-TV. He is a constant voice for accuracy in the education of media professionals and an advocate for student original programming, Bryan constantly seeks opportunities that enable students to tell their own story.

In 1993, while at CAU-TV, Bryan managed the Host Broadcast Training Program for the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games (ACOG). From 1993 up to the start of the Games in 1996 more than a thousand students were trained and hired to work in various positions during the Games. Following the 1996 Games, Bryan was requested to assist and manage the training of students in Sydney, Australia for the 2000 Games. Part of an elite staff of men and women, he was chosen to take command and control of the main television and radio signal system responsible for bringing the Olympics to the world. In this capacity, he became one of the very first people to see the Olympic footage on a TV screen. Between 2002 and 2006 Bryan has been invited to, and has participated in the world broadcast of the Games in Salt Lake City, Athens and Turin. In winter 2010, he returned as a Video Engineer at the Broadcast Mountain Compound in Vancouver for the 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Games.

As a media professional, Bryan continues to do freelance work, some of which has aired on BET, ESPN, VH-1, WSB-TV Atlanta (an ABC affiliate), Fox television and Fox Sports. At Turner Broadcasting System, he was a member of the production team for Inside the NBA, and won an EMMY (2002). In addition, his Olympic efforts have assisted NBC in claiming EMMY’s in Engineering & Production for its Olympics coverage. Overall, Bryan is known to be efficient, loyal, and extremely knowledgeable in the area of broadcast operations and engineering. Modest and direct, he is a very hard worker and knows TV production from soup to nuts paying critical attention to detail, a quality that serves him well not only in his chosen career, but also in his passion for cars, specifically Land Rovers.

Very early in life Bryan realized that cars were his “thing”. He knows cars by the sound that they make, the color they are painted, and/or the shape of their exterior. Although he has a deep appreciation for a number of beautifully crafted automobiles, he has been able to realize himself most completely in his experiences with the undisputed superior off road vehicles: the Land Rover.

In 2004, Bryan married the lovely Renel L. Lewis (now Jenkins) of Houston, Texas. She is a graduate of Clark Atlanta University and an accomplished Massage Therapist. They have two children and continue to build a beautiful life together.
