Brittany Martin joined the NewsChannel 9 team as a reporter in March 2015. She came to us from WBBJ in Jackson, TN.
Brittany grew up in Murphy, NC, just an hour and half outside Chattanooga. She grew up watching our station and credits NewsChannel 9 for inspiring her to become a journalist.
In high school, Brittany co-founded and co-anchored her high school's news broadcast, which still runs today. Brittany attended University of Georgia where she studied Digital and Broadcast Journalism.
While in college, she interned at Fox 5 in Atlanta where she shadowed reporters and helped write scripts for the 11 o'clock show. She then interned at another station here in Chattanooga where she helped cover President Obama's visit to the Scenic City.
On her days off, Brittany loves spending time with her husband, Alex, dog: Piper and cat: Leonard. She also likes being outdoors, thrift shopping and kickboxing!
