Jennifer Webb

Date of Joining WATE: October 2016

Birthplace/Hometown: I was born in Pigeon Forge, TN but I’ve called Knoxville home almost all of my life.

Education: I bleed UT orange! I am a proud graduate of the University of Tennessee’s Journalism and Electronic Media program.

Previous Media Experience: I was a reporter in Dothan, Alabama, the amazing peanut capitol of the world, before returning home to Rocky Top. During college I interned at WBIR and WVLT right here in Knoxville.

Outside Interests/Hobbies: Food. I love trying new foods. Indian and Korean are two of my favorites. I also love playing fetch with my spoiled cat Oliver and attending as many country music concerts as I possibly can.

What you enjoy about local news: I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. It is such a privilege to give a platform and voice to people who might not have had the chance otherwise. It is even more incredible to be able to tell the stories of people I’ve grown up with.
