WTKR Assignment Editor
Hannah Wallsmith joined WTKR News 3 in June 2016. She came to the East Coast from WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News in Jackson, TN. While there, Hannah worked as the Assignment Desk Editor as well as assisting the Web Producer.
Hannah grew up in Trenton, a small town in West Tennessee. In May 2015, Hannah graduated from The University of Tennessee at Martin with a degree in meteorology and minor in communications, but her interest in news began long before then.
While in college at UT Martin, Hannah found her passion in news while interning at WMC-TV Action News 5, Memphis, in the summer of 2014. She had the opportunity to learn all aspects of not only the meteorology department, but also the newsroom, which sparked her interest in the Assignment Desk.
In her free time, Hannah enjoys playing sports, spending time with friends and family, doing anything outdoors and most of all, cooking some mean southern country food!
