Ellie French is from Northern Virginia but was raised in San Diego, California. She graduated from Penn State with a degree in journalism concentrating on sports broadcasting.
Ellie’s passion for sports began at a young age. Her earliest memories include watching San Francisco 49ers games with her father. At the age of 13, she realized she wanted to be a sports reporter after watching journalists Hannah Storm and Stuart Scott on ESPN. She got her start in TV interning at NBC Washington in their sports department and NBC Sports Bay Area/California in San Francisco.
Along with the 49ers, her favorite teams include the San Francisco Giants, Golden State Warriors and Washington Capitals.
Ellie is thrilled to be part of the sports team at WTOK and is excited to share her passion for sports with communities across East Mississippi and West Alabama.
