Former Nashville news anchor and reporter Jennifer Johnson has been named the public information officer for Wilson County Schools.
An Emmy Award-winning journalist, Johnson spent the first decade of her career working as a crime reporter for television stations in Kentucky, Alabama and Tennessee.
During a five-year break from news, Johnson spent two years serving as the spokesperson for the Tennessee Department of Correction. In 2004, she was chosen to launch the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's first-ever media relations office.
"Ms. Johnson brings a wealth of knowledge in communications, and she understands the day-to-day communication needed in a school system," Wilson County Director of Schools Dr. Donna Wright said. "Her professionalism, work ethic and the respect she enjoys throughout the state are undeniable. We are thrilled to have Jennifer as Wilson County Schools' public information officer."
