You can call her a reporter, photographer, writer and editor - but we like to call her simply our "VJ" or video journalist.
Tina Jensen was born in Los Angeles, but lived in Montana, New York and again in California before moving to Boise. Travels to Africa, South America, Europe and post-Katrina New Orleans inspired her to pursue a career in journalism.
Her reporting on food waste was published in The Huffington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Daily News, Contra Costa Times, Long Beach Press Telegram, and Daily Breeze. She's worked as a news assistant at KABC in Los Angeles and reported for various television outlets in Southern California including KBAK and KBFX in Bakersfield.
Before that, she was a network intern for "NBC Nightly News" with Brian Williams and the "Today" show.
She received an award from the Society of Professional Journalists for the four-part multimedia series she produced on the 10th anniversary of the Columbine tragedy. She has also received the Hal Fishman Award from the Radio and Television News Association's Golden Mike Awards.
When she's not reporting the day's events, you can find her spending time running or playing tennis with her husband Chris, singing, or cheering on the Baltimore Orioles (yes, the Orioles). A few years ago she combined two of those passions by singing the national anthem at Camden Yards.
She has a Master's Degree in broadcast journalism from USC's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and a bachelor's degree from Concordia University in Irvine.
