Christian Jennings joined Local 15 in March 2012 as a general assignment reporter. She is thrilled to be in Mobile and covering the Gulf Coast!
Before moving to Alabama, Christian lived in New Orleans where she reported for the ABC affiliate WGNO for a year. In New Orleans, Christian covered a variety of stories that gained national attention, including Tropical Storm Lee, the Halloween shootings on Bourbon Street that killed two people and injured more than a dozen others, and the Danziger Bridge police shooting trial. Christian reported live as a jury convicted five New Orleans police officers in the post Hurricane Katrina shooting and cover-up.
Christian began her career in Albany, GA at the NBC/ABC affiliate WALB. For nearly three years she served as a reporter and fill-in anchor. In 2010 she won an Associated Press award for Best Spot News Reporting. She also received an honorable mention in 2010 by the Georgia Associated Press for her series of live reports from the Gulf Coast on the BP Oil Spill.
Christian graduated from the University of Georgia in 2008 with a major in Broadcast News and a minor in Music. Try not to hold it against her, but she is a Georgia Bulldog fan! She's also an Atlanta Braves and New Orleans Saints fan and loves watching and attending sporting events!
In her spare time you'll find her at the beach, playing kickball, singing karaoke, or visiting her friends and family in Atlanta.
