We remember jazz journalist/producer Orrin Keepnews. He produced classic jazz albums and was the founder of two important jazz labels.
Tiara Vian is a Production Assistant for the KJZZ news team, producing station promotional pieces and helping draft new ideas for future promos. She’s also helping the team expand its music library with clever drive time grooves to play under and in between program segments.
Vian has hands-on experience in audio editing, producing, board operating, call screening and voice work — most recently as a producer and call screener for KQTH News/Talk radio in Tucson.
Tucson is the place Vian called home for a long time. To beat the heat and to find out what it’s like to live somewhere new, she attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff in 2006. She earned a Bachelor's degree in Electronic Media and Film in 2010 and returned to Tucson to work for KQTH for the next year. She now lives in Mesa.
