    JARED Fortin

    Jared has been with COGECOTV Ottawa Valley for over 3 years now. We first meet Jared was back during a program called “LIVE BETWEEN COMMERCIALS” produced by a group from Fellowes High School in Pembroke. Jared was an important part of the crew on camera or helping with the teleprompter. Since that show wrapped up he has taken on a new role learning to master the Jib camera in the studio. BE MY GUEST a new show just completing its first season. It would have been hard if it wasn’t for Jared and Kris (his buddy) crewing the cameras for almost every episode!
    Thanks Jared!
