Myke Johns


Myke Johns was hired in 2006 to edit for a few hours a week. Since then, he has run through traffic on Marietta Streetridden shotgun in a speeding racecar, and spent many late nights with actors and athletes alike.

His work has won awards from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters and the Georgia APME.

In addition to his reckless behavior here, he also serves as co-producer of WRITE CLUB Atlanta, a competitive philanthropic literary event.

Carter Sutherland sings Miley Cyrus’ saccharine 2009 hit "The Climb" as he hefts a rolled-up handicap ramp through the front door of the Mammal Gallery in Atlanta’s South Downtown neighborhood. It’s a little unwieldy, but for a person living with a disability, it could mean being able to get into a venue to see their favorite band.
