David Hampton

David joined WBBJ-TV as the station’s web producer in August 2014, managing social media and web content.

A West Tennessee native, David was born in Jackson and grew up in nearby Huntingdon.

David attended Jackson State Community College before transferring to the University of Tennessee at Martin where he graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in news-editorial communications.

David has previously worked as a full-time copy editor for a daily newspaper and also in content development for an e-learning company.

Before joining WBBJ, David spent the summer of 2014 on the staff of Carroll County 1,000 Acre Recreational Lake just outside Huntingdon.

When not on the job, David enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, hanging out with friends and family and, of course, wasting time on the Internet.
