What You Enjoy About Local News:

I love being able to tell stories of people in our community. I believe journalists are the voice of the people, so working at WATE and having the chance to be On Your Side is exactly what I love about this business. I believe there is real opportunity to help people and make East Tennessee an even better place to live.
