JENNIFER MOORE, '03 - DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI
Currently the Executive Producer for WLWT News 5 Today, where she oversees the morning newscast. She’s held that position for the last two-and-a-half years. Her responsibilities include making sure the reporters, anchors, photographers and producers are all on the same page bringing the viewer breaking news and relevant information on multiple platforms (TV, mobile, and web). She is also in charge of booking interview guests for the weekend morning newscast.
Prior to her role at WLWT, she worked as a producer, reporter and television host at WCPO for nine years, where she launched the station’s 4:30 a.m. newscast, as well as the station's new graphics system, and worked her way up to producing the 5 p.m. newscast. She also served on a committee to improve workflow in the newsroom.
Moore graduated among the top 50 from Princeton High School in 2003. During her years as a Viking, she was apart of the National Honors Society, drill team captain, band, varsity and junior varsity cheerleading team, Odin's Word writer and editor, Princeton Instructional Television (PITV) and more. It was in Ms. Patricia Easton's creative writing class in the fifth grade that Moore realized her love for writing.
She explored that interest through PITV and Odin's Word. That eventually led her to pursue a journalism degree from Ohio University's E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, where she graduated cum laude. While at O.U., she became involved in WOUB where she anchored, reported and produced for television and radio. She also became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (Delta Phi chapter) where she served as President for 2-and-a-half years. Moore participated in the Black Student Communication Caucus (secretary), Order of Omega Honors Fraternity (Recruitment chair), L.O.S D.I.S.C.O dance team (Vice President), and emceed the Homecoming Parade. Throughout her years in Athens, she garnered several scholarships, and interned at WCPO almost every summer, which resulted in an easy transition after graduation.
