Tim Jenkins is the CNN crawl guy who first transmitted the news of Gleason Jones' death. Jenkins got his job because his uncle is the head of the CNN News department. One of the perks of being a legacy employee is that he works out of his basement instead of the corporate headquarters. While Turner companies use a T2 line, Jenkins continues to use a T1 because he likes to "kick it old-school". Jenkins has a few issues with CNN management, particularly their refusal to allow him to promote his band on the network.
