Back in elementary school, I anchored our morning show announcements. Every time I was on the desk, I would look into the camera as if the entire city was watching. Little did I know, I'd begin my career in my hometown.
I'm currently an anchor and reporter in Atlanta. But prior to calling the metro home, I worked as a reporter and trending news anchor in Jacksonville. During my time with First Coast News WTLV/WJXX and Good Morning Jacksonville, I created multiple community based and human interest franchises, and launched 'The Buzz' covering entertainment news, buzz-worthy topics and social media reaction from viewers.
I enjoy connecting with new people, learning from them and their experiences, and then sharing what I've learned through the stories I write and tell. All in all, my goal is to portray excellence while setting new standards for future journalists. Be sure to connect with me on all social media platforms @brooksbaptiste.
