Jennifer Horbelt is the co-anchor of WPSD Local 6 at 5, 6 and 10 alongside Todd Faulkner. If there is one word to describe her, it would be energetic! Meeting people and telling their stories in a compelling way is a big part of the reason she loves news.
Jennifer grew up in Houston, Texas, but attended the University of Tennessee at Martin, right here in the WPSD viewing area. Jennifer began her career at WPSD while still a student at UT Martin, working her way from intern, to reporter, to evening anchor- covering a range of stories, from several high profile local trials, to Winter Storm ’09, to flooding and tornado damage.
In 2011, Jennifer took an opportunity to anchor and report in Colorado Springs at NBC affiliate KOAA News 5. While there, she took part in the coverage of multiple massive wildfires (including the Waldo Canyon and Black Forest fires), the Aurora Theater Shooting, the Broncos Super Bowl run from New Jersey/New York City, interviewed President Obama during his campaign run in 2012 and Jimmy Fallon prior to his big takeover of The Tonight Show.
After two and a half years with a view of the Rocky Mountains, Jennifer and her new husband decided the time was right to return to the area she considers home: west Kentucky.
