Jerry Gibbs is passionate about television. And he shares that passion in all the courses he teaches here at Curry.
"I've always loved television's ability to connect and communicate with people," says Professor Gibbs. "It gives viewers a window to a world that they may never see otherwise."
Gibbs' television career is vast and diversified. He started as a disc jockey at a small Worcester, Mass. radio station and worked his way up to television news where he has worked in virtually every position.
"You name it, I've probably done it: photographer, reporter, anchor, News Director...a lot of hats," laughs Gibbs.
His resume also includes production and writing work with FOX television's "America's Most Wanted", public relations with "Disney on Ice", and working as a home page editor at washingtonpost.com.
But being a college professor is the most rewarding. "I want to give students a love for television. And I want them to have an appreciation for ALL aspects of television, from production to on-air," he says.
A television student at Curry will certainly get that and more in one of Professor Gibbs' television classes, offered in our state-of-the-art Hirsh Communication Center.
