On any given night, one can walk the streets of the historic district and peer through art gallery windows to see visual renditions of stories in paintings or walk into lively downtown pubs to hear one of our many talented musicians, telling stories through music. For a different kind of storytelling, we introduce to you Donald and Janice Dusseau Jones.
The Northeast Florida natives have built their latest venture, CycleHere Media, on a shared passion for telling meaningful stories and a combined thirty-plus years of broadcast journalism experience. The husband and wife video-marketing duo both started their careers working for television news stations. Janice began her career more than twenty years ago as a news producer and writer at the NBC affiliate in Jacksonville. Since then, her most notable achievements are her work as Chief Meteorologist at NBC Raleigh and Fox Orlando. Known for her expertise on hurricanes, Janice has appeared nationally on MSNBC to report on the extreme weather phenomena.
Donald’s nearly twenty-year media career has taken him to many of the same locations as Janice. As a news anchor for much of that time, Donald appeared on the Today Show, as well as on MSNBC, most notably for his coverage of ‘Operation Support Hope’ in Africa.
Since opening their doors in June, 2012, the Joneses have designed and produced captivating videos, locally and statewide, intended to help clients strengthen their customer base.
“Our expertise is storytelling,” says Janice. “Our goal is to help our clients grow their businesses using engaging video.” With clients such as VISIT FLORIDA, and various visitors bureaus around the state, CycleHere Media takes content marketing from concept to creation. “We help our clients engage their audiences emotionally,” says Donald. “Our extensive experience in front of the camera has helped us understand what is needed to capture an audience.”
As active members of local non-profit boards, the Joneses are also proving that they are all about home. “We take pride in our community, and our goal is for CycleHere Media to be a positive influence right here where we live,” says Janice.
