Tabitha first joined the 7 Eyewitness News team in 2003 and currently serves as the assignment editor.
After being grounded many times for watching too much television during her youth, it was only natural for Tabitha to end up working in broadcasting. After graduating from Georgia Christian School in Dasher, Georgia, she followed her family's tradition and enrolled as a student at Freed-Hardeman University. She worked at the campus television station and 91.5 WFHU (which simulcasts 7 Eyewitness News at 5:00 p.m.) while earning her B.A. in Communication.
After completing her undergraduate studies, she started working at WBBJ on the news production team and as a videographer while earning a Master of Education degree at FHU.
Since she still hadn’t gotten enough of college, Tabitha moved to East Texas where she worked as a technical director and graphic designer at KTRE and earned her M.A. in Communication at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches (say that five times fast).
Tabitha returned to WBBJ in 2006 and has done a little bit of everything since then including directing newscasts, collecting video in the field, producing and even occasionally taking out the trash.
During her years in the field and behind the desk, Tabitha has covered tornadoes, the May 2010 flood, hurricanes, wild fires and more, but her favorite events to cover are sporting events. You can occasionally still find her on the sidelines (or baselines) shooting football, basketball or baseball games.
In her free time, Tabitha enjoys spending time with her family in West Tennessee and spends her spring and summer at 4 Fun Place as the audio operator for the Jackson Generals (Double-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners).
