Jen Jacobson, Anchor for WZDX News

Jen is excited to join the WZDX News team, anchoring the 9 p.m. newscasts, Sunday through Thursday alongside her co-anchor, Chase Gallimore. In addition to her anchoring responsibilities, Jen contributes special reports.

Jen studied Journalism at Brigham Young University and double minored in Business Management and Consumer Sciences. While in college, Jen had the chance to anchor the school newscasts her senior year. During this time, she and her news team received national recognition, earning the title: “Best All-Around Newscast” from the Society of Professional Journalists. Jen also had the privilege of representing her college as a BYU cheerleader for four years, traveling the country and meeting remarkable people along the way.

After graduating in the top of her journalism class, Jen landed a gig in Tyler, Texas as a weekday morning news anchor and a midday talk show co-host. She was grateful to begin her career close to home – Dallas, Texas. In addition to her anchoring and hosting experience, Jen reported throughout central Utah for both BYU TV and KSL News.

Now, Jen is happy to call the beautiful Tennessee Valley home. She's excited to check out the US Space and Rocket Center, explore the outdoors and ultimately meet local viewers every chance she can. Jen enjoys journalism because she gets to meet inspirational people and learn something new everyday. If you’d like to share a story idea or simply say hi, Jen would love to hear from you!
