This week on My Greenville Home Radio, Dan is talking with Jamarcus Gaston, local brand storyteller and WSPA Your Carolina TV Host.
Jamarcus came to Greenville in 2003 to attend college at Furman University, his dream school. A talented musician from a family of teachers, Jamarcus majored in Music and Communication Studies. After graduation, Jamarcus began work with WSPA as an intern and never left! From interning and writing scripts to interviewing celebrities and reporting news, Jamarcus has done it all. The talented television star remarked that he feels spending time behind the camera makes you much better in front of one, and he looks back on his 15+ years with WSPA fondly.
Currently, Jamarcus is the third host of Your Carolina WSPA, rounding out the team with his extensive knowledge of restaurants, fashion, and all things local.
What does a day in Jamarcus’ life look like? Jamarcus hits the gym at 5am and then arrives to work in the new Camperdown Plaza at 7:15am. He and his co-hosts Megan Heidlburg and Jack Roper prepare and research for their segment before going live at 9am every day. After the show, the hosts have zoom meetings with clients and local event organizers and spend the afternoon preparing for the next day’s segment. Finally, Jamarcus spends his events at events representing the show.
For those who admire Jamarcus’ career, he offered the following advice: “If you’re willing to put in the work, anything is possible. As an intern especially, treat your job like an employee would.” As an intern, Jamarcus wore suits to work every day and was eager to learn and make an impression. “Use every opportunity as an opportunity,” he continued, “Show up and do 100% at any job you’re given and you’ll be noticed.”
