Jonathan Huskey is the newest member of the 5NEWS Sports team, as reporter and weekend anchor. He’s thrilled to be the only full-time television reporter in the River Valley, and is looking forward to meeting the members of the community that make this area special.
After graduating from Union University in Jackson, Tenn. in 2008, Jonathan worked at WBBJ-TV, the ABC affiliate in Jackson, for two years. During his time in Tennessee, he covered multiple state championships, three NAIA women’s basketball national championships, and interviewed big names such as Peyton Manning, Todd Worrell and Javy Lopez.
Jonathan believes that local sports are more than a score and a highlight. The people involved are what make stories interesting, and the River Valley is the place to be to find and tell the stories people want to hear. He has a passion for local sports, and can’t wait to share that excitement with the 5NEWS viewers.
