Anchor

Jason rejoined the WTVM staff in August 2007 and now anchors News Leader 9 at 5:00, 6:00 and 11:00. He has 15 years of experience in the TV news business, most of that time in Columbus and East Alabama.  Jason graduated from Elon College in N.C. in 1998 and immediately started his first job as reporter and anchor at WDTV in Bridgeport, W.V. Jason became WTVM's East Alabama Bureau Chief in 1999, working out of our Opelika newsroom.  He then moved to Columbus, working with the station as the senior police, courts & military reporter until 2004.  From there, Jason moved to Birmingham, AL and worked for 3 years as a reporter and fill-in anchor at WBRC Fox 6, which is now part of our Raycom team. Married since 2000, Jason's wife Shana is a home health physical therapist in Columbus.  They now live in Midland with their two wonderful children - Olivia and Zachary.  Jason's interests include going to church, running, playing sports like tennis, golf and basketball, along with traveling and watching movies.  The most important thing in Jason's life is his faith in God. Jason was born in Galveston, Texas in 1976 and grew up mainly in the mountains of western North Carolina, near Asheville, where Jason's parents and sister still live.
