Tiffany Blackmon joined Oklahoma’s NewsChannel 4’s Sports team in September of 2011. She’s excited to be a part of what Sports Director Bob Barry Jr. calls “The B Team,” Barry, Brinkley, Buckingham and Blackmon.
Tiffany comes to KFOR-TV from Waco, TX, where she was the Sports Director at KXXV-TV.
Prior to working in Texas, she landed her first on-air job as the Weekend Sports anchor at KPLC-TV in Lake Charles, LA.
However, Tiffany’s first experience working in live TV came during her time as a production assistant at The Weather Channel, which by the way, was a great gig to have coming out of college!
Tiffany is a former collegiate athlete and played soccer all four years at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA.
There, she earned her degree in Journalism, Telecommunications.
Tiffany calls the “Peach State” her home, but was born in Massachusetts and lived in Ohio and New Jersey before her family planted their roots in Georgia.
She comes from a family of athletes (no relation to OSU receiver Justin Blackmon, unless you want there to be), and didn’t have to think twice about what career path she’d take after college, becoming a sports reporter!
Tiffany is most thankful for her family; they motivate her to follow her dreams and they are what keep her going everyday!
When not at work you can find Tiffany watching sports, playing sports or shopping.
Feel free to send her any great sports story ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
