Jennifer’s friendly, warm voice has been heard around the world. Her name
and face are recognized by television and radio audiences for integrity and
compassion.

Jennifer Herron sums up her achievements by saying, "I was raised in Texas
where we were taught to work hard, care about others and to always put your
full heart into anything you do."

Jennifer was raised outside of San Antonio, Texas on a quarter horse ranch.
Truck radios and weekend dances were filled with country music. It was
this country lifestyle that would later form her career.

In high school, Jennifer was crowned Mesquite Traildrivers’ Queen. As a
spokesperson with the San Antonio Rodeo, she was first introduced to
television and radio. After excelling in speech and English courses in
college, it was apparent broadcasting was her calling.

Jennifer worked in radio and television in San Antonio and Nashville both as
a disc jockey and news anchor/reporter. Some highlights include hosting the
Classic Country Café at KKYX, hosting the Opry Star Spotlight and cohosting
the morning show on WSM, working backstage at the Grand Ole
Opry and launching Better Nashville at WSMV.

In 2004, Jennifer Herron was honored as the announcer for the legendary
Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree. Jennifer explains, "This show is what
Nashville is all about for me…..the tradition, great entertainment, the
generosity of stars and the chance for fans to get up close and get the best
music out there."

Her work has been awarded with three Emmy wins as a member of the
WSMV morning team. She also earned the March of Dimes Air Award for
Best Interview in 2007.

In her spare time, Jennifer donates her time and talent for several charities.
At home, Jennifer’s pets are spoiled. And most evenings consist of
gardening, her husband Bobby Marquez singing, some barbecue and
dancing. As Jennifer says, "I have been blessed."
