A native Memphian, Jessica Broom graduated from White Station High School and attended college at Middle Tennessee State University where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communication.
She interned at Action News 5 during the summer of 2008 and shortly afterwards was hired as a full-time employee.
Since joining the Action News 5 team, Jessica has held a number of positions from graphics and audio to video editing and in studio production. However, in 2010 she decided to take on a new challenge by becoming the Chopper 5 videographer.
She is member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and Gamma Beta Phi Honor Society. She is also a member of Castalia Baptist Church.
When she is not flying high in the Mid-South skies, she spends her spare time volunteering, going to the movies, bowling, and hanging out with family and friends.
She really enjoys the challenge of presenting the unique perspectives for all our viewers that no other Mid-South station provides.
