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.
