Janean Jorgensen

Marketing Coordinator

Janean holds that most versatile degree, a BA in English from Gonzaga University. (She also majored in journalism.) She chose to take some broadcasting classes since she had already written for a professional newspaper before and during college, and thus began her journey into the radio world. Strangely, her main tasks for SPR are creating graphic images for the website, eblasts and various print materials. Janean created KPBX's first official websites and worked for NPR's New Media division in 2000. She created, produced and hosted the Broadway Matinee radio show which put her in both Judges' Choice and Voters' Choice lists for the PRX "Hostiness" Contest. She is on hiatus from the show, at least until her high schooler doesn't need a chauffeur anymore. She would like to sing more often.

One student from Freeman High School was killed this morning in a shooting at the school. Spokane County authorities have arrested one person in connection with that.

Three other students were also hit by gunfire and taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center.

"We have three teenagers with us and they’re all doing well. They’re stable at this point. One will be requiring some surgery later this afternoon,” said trauma surgeon Dr. Mike Moore.

He wouldn’t elaborate on the students’ injuries. Their parents have joined them at the hospital.
