Beth Jett

Beth Jett is a Southern Belle, born and raised in Scottsboro. She's back in the Tennessee Valley with her husband to raise their daughter, Sarah, born in December 2009, and to bring you the news you need to know in a way that you'll enjoy.

Beth is a 1994 graduate of the University of Alabama. She got her start in the media working at Huntsville TV and radio stations. After leaving Huntsville, she worked her way up in television broadcast news, making appearances on network news shows.

From 1996 to 2002, Beth served as anchor/reporter for WSFA in Montgomery. As a crime reporter there in 1996, she founded Montgomery Area Crimestoppers, which is still very active in solving crimes and prosecuting criminals. In 2002, Beth left Alabama for Wichita, Kansas, where she served as a weekend news anchor and reporter at KAKE-TV. There, she covered the arrest and prosecution of the BTK Serial Killer who kept Wichita on edge for 30 years.

In 2005, Beth moved to Minnesota to serve as a reporter and back-up anchor for KSTP-TV in Minneapolis/St. Paul. She was there when the 35W Bridge collapsed, killing 13 people and leaving the country paranoid over the safety of all bridges. In 2008, Beth became the Main Anchor and Managing Editor at KQDS-TV in Duluth, Minnesota, on the shores of Lake Superior. A devoted animal lover, Beth did a weekly report entitled "Animal Tales, " informing viewers of interesting stories about all kinds of animals and animal issues. Beth lead the FOX 21 news team to two Emmy awards.

Meanwhile, Sarah Elizabeth was born, bringing a new kind of love and happiness to Beth and her family. Sarah's grandparents live in Scottsboro and Bowling Green, Kentucky. They insisted on spoiling her and asked that it be convenient for them to do.

Thankfully, WHNT News 19 saved the day and welcomed Beth into its family, making it so that a trip to visit both sets of grandparents is only a car drive away! Thanks WHNT News 19, for Taking Action and Getting Results!

You can see Beth reporting weekdays on WHNT NEWS 19 This Morning. Beth also fills in for Michelle and Steve on the anchor desk.
