David Garraway of the Mississippi State University Television Center is the unit’s director after serving three years as video program
manager. Garraway succeeds longtime director Mike Godwin, who is moving to the new post of operations and engineering manager, a position he sought because of his years of broadcasting experience and technical expertise.
In the director role, Garraway reports to the university’s Chief Communications Officer Sid Salter, who also serves as director of the Office of Public Affairs, consisting of seven units including the TV Center. Prior to joining MSU, Garraway served as producer and operations manager for a television production facility in Hattiesburg, his hometown. He received a bachelor’s degree in radio, television, and film production and a master’s degree in mass communication, both from the University of Southern Mississippi. Currently, he’s pursuing a master of business administration degree from MSU.
Two other appointments are part of the TV Center’s reorganization. They include Steve Carver moving from part-time associate producer to interim senior producer; and Hal Teasler moving from graphic designer for public affairs to videographic coordinator for the TV Center.
