Jenna Zibton - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

Jenna Zibton

If you had to pick between paper-mache and making your own video... which would you choose? I bet you can guess my choice.

In middle school we had to create a project for class. Instead of drawing or picking up scissors and glue, I armed myself with a video camera and hit the streets of Dallas. Using two VHS tape decks, I edited the final project--- way before I knew that's what people in the television industry were doing.

Fast forward to present day--- and you see where those early ambitions landed me.

You'll see me weekends on WSLS and Fox 21/27 6, 10 and 11 p.m. and out in the field covering major stories like the derecho, the presidential campaign and military/veteran issues.

When not at work, you can find me training for a half marathon, volunteering across the community with the Junior League of the Roanoke Valley and Blue Ridge Veterans Celebration, hiking, scrapbooking and traveling to new places with my husband.

I've previously anchored and reported in Louisiana, Alabama and Texas. I'm a proud graduate of Sam Houston State University (Go Bearkats!).

The most memorable stories are usually from your tips--- let me know what's going on in your life at jzibton@wsls.com or Facebook http://www.facebook.com/jennasjems
