Brittany Bailey is grateful to return to WBIR after a 10-year hiatus to anchor the noon and 4 p.m. newscasts. She previously worked at the station as a reporter and weekend morning anchor from 2006 to 2012. She earned her degree from the Medill School of Journalism (Medill Mafia!) at Northwestern University (Go Wildcats!).

Brittany’s first on-air job was at WKYT in Lexington prior to her college graduation. After that, she reported for the Newark Advocate, produced at KSDK in St. Louis, was the weekend anchor for WMAZ in Macon, anchored weekend mornings at WBIR in Knoxville, was a morning/noon anchor at KRDO in Colorado Springs, a morning anchor at KREM in Spokane, and a weekend morning anchor at WBNS in Columbus, Ohio.

She is excited to rediscover the Smoky Mountains and all that is new and special about East Tennessee. Brittany is a huge animal lover and misses her late kitty Gabby. She also is a vegetarian foodie, skier, hiker, baker (nicknamed Brittany Crocker), adventurer, live music fan, reader, wine-lover, cross-stitcher and tap dancer.
