From The Wolfpack to The Wolfcast

Senior Perry Jamail is continuing his passion for film at the University of North Texas this fall. “I’m going to miss putting together a show, seeing everyone work super hard and the feeling of collaboration,” Jamail said. “That feeling and seeing our hard work shown throughout the school every day is a feeling I won’t get to feel in college and I’ll definitely miss that from high school.”

He may not be the face saying “have a great day or not, the choice is yours,” but as the executive producer of The Wolfcast, senior Perry Jamail is in charge of all things behind the scenes.

After joining the broadcast introduction class during his sophomore year, then moving up to the broadcast class in the spring semester, Jamail said he found his true passion for film and journalism.

“Broadcast is my favorite class because I’ve gotten to [hold] a lot of positions throughout the years I have been in here,” Jamail said. “My first two years, I was working as a reporter and it was fun going and finding those stories, sharing information and talking to people I didn’t even know there were stories at. My favorite thing about [broadcast] is how the stories come together every day and everyone working and putting them all together is really cool to see.”

Aside from the film aspect of the class, it was discovering new stories in his community that excited Jamail. In order to improve his journalistic skills, Jamail joined the Wolfpack newspaper in his junior year, where he said he was able to expand his knowledge.

“It was really fun going out and finding real news stories around the school and happening in our community and going out and presenting that to students here,” Jamail said. “My junior year, I wanted to get more into it, so I also joined newspaper to expand my journalism knowledge to online article writing.”

I’m going to miss putting together a show, seeing everyone work super hard and the feeling of collaboration.”

At the beginning of his senior year, Jamail became the associate producer for The Wolfcast and later became the executive producer, where he oversaw stories, produced shows and helped plan for the future of the broadcast program. In this leadership position, he learned skills such as being more involved and vocal, according to Jamail. 

“Broadcast has taught me a lot of things, but I think the most important thing it has taught me is to be more vocal,” Jamail said. “I was definitely a super quiet person my sophomore and junior year, but during my junior year and especially this year, I’ve started to learn more how to be a leader and start talking more by being more vocal with people. That’s definitely a huge skill that I appreciate learning throughout these years in broadcast.”

After Jamail graduates, he plans on attending the University of North Texas, where he will study film. Because of Jamail’s experience in the broadcast program, he said that he is very excited about his college experience.

“I’ll be using the knowledge from this class about camera angles and how to shoot interviews with me in college for my film degree,” Jamail said.

Even though the school year is coming to a close, Jamail said he is grateful for his journey in broadcast and journalism and cherishes the memories and work he has helped with.

“I’m going to miss putting together a show, seeing everyone work super hard and the feeling of collaboration,” Jamail said. “That feeling and seeing our hard work shown throughout the school every day is a feeling I won’t get to feel in college and I’ll definitely miss that from high school.”
