about tatum

Let me start off by saying: I love what I do. Currently, I’m the main Sports Anchor at FOX 17 in Nashville, TN. Before calling the Music City home, I spent over five years in Shreveport, LA where I moved my way up from reporter to running the sports department. Before Shreveport, I was the Sports Director at KTEN in Denison, TX and KWBJ in Morgan City, LA.

While I was the Sports Director at KTBS, I learned how to manage a three person department and organize the day-to-day activities. I also anchored our hour-long Friday Night Fever high school football show which received the best ratings in years this past season.

Throughout my career, I’ve been lucky enough to cover some big events and share local stories with the community. But to me, it doesn’t matter how big or how small the story is, as long as it’s compelling.

I attack each and every assignment with the same passion and energy.  At the end of the day, viewers want to be entertained and it’s our job to make the them want to watch. It’s what continues to drive me every day.
