Jennifer Johnson is one of the few news anchors in town who can call Nashville TN home. She grew up just 10 miles north of the city, graduated from Davidson Academy, and got a bachelor's degree in journalism from Western Kentucky University. After working her way across the south as a reporter in Owensboro, KY, Bowling Green, KY, Paducah, KY, and Birmingham, AL, Jennifer was hired by Channel 4 in 1998 to be a general assignment reporter.
Wendell Ford was laid to rest in Owensboro today (1-27-15). He died January 22 after a battle with lung cancer. He was 90-years-old. Ford served Kentucky as State Representative and Lt. Governor before becoming Governor. He never had any desire to be anything but Governor, but state law at the time would not allow him to run for a second term. That led to a four term career in the U.S. Senate. - Tri-State News, Weather & Sports
