KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Hello East Tennessee! My name is Jacinta Danielle Render and I love distributing news content and keeping everyone aware of what’s going on around you. I joined the 10News team as a Multi-Skilled Journalist in March of 2021.

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA. My first assignment as a journalist started in West Tennessee in Jackson in June 2020. I was a storyteller and I enjoyed observing the happenings around Jackson sharing what I saw at 39 NEWS, WNBJ.

I am proud to have received my undergraduate degree from Clark Atlanta University, a Historically Black College and University in Atlanta. I graduated with a degree in Mass Media Arts with a concentration in Radio, Television, and Film. While attending Clark Atlanta University, I interned with the City of Atlanta, V103 Radio Station, Clark Atlanta University’s News Station, and WSB Channel 2 news.

I received my Master of Professional Studies in Journalism from Georgetown University. While attending Georgetown, I interned for two semesters with ABC.

I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, and I enjoy volunteering and being a service to all mankind.

When I’m not reporting, I enjoy spending time with my furbaby Benjamin Ice, my family, producing videos for my JDanielle Beauty Blog, shopping, and cooking. I have mastered all of the famous family recipes and during the holidays, I am the one tasked with making sure the signature family dishes are always on the table.

I am a true southern belle and I love interacting with new people. Please say hello to me as you spot me out and about searching for interesting stories. I am very proud to call Knoxville and East Tennessee my new home.
