Jake Thomas joined the 44News team in February 2020 as a reporter. He joins the team after serving as a reporter and radio broadcaster in Fort Worth, Texas.

Originally from Owensboro, Kentucky, he is no stranger to the tri-state. His original interest in broadcasting was sparked at the age of 19 when he interned at a sport radio station in Louisville, Kentucky. After that, he decided to transfer to Texas Christian University (Go Frog’s!) where he Majored in sports broadcasting and minored in journalism. After graduating in the fall of 2019, Jake moved back home to Owensboro, Kentucky.

If you don’t see Jake out in the community covering a breaking story, then you can probably find him in the gym playing basketball or out on rough river with friends and family.
