Fallon Pierson photo Hello. If you’re reading this, I’m flattered you are interested in me.

I’ve held just about every job you can in the news business during the past three years. I’ve been a video editor, a one-man-band reporter, a photographer (photojournalist) and currently hold the position of producer/reporter. I produce the 7 a.m. show and report for our noon broadcast.

I interned here at WCHS and PBS (West Virginia Public Broadcasting) while still attending school at West Virginia State University. After graduating magna cum laude with a bachelor of science degree in communications, it was tough to find a job. The economy was probably at its worst then. I took a job working the front desk of a hotel. I worked there a year before a position opened up back here at WCHS. Thankfully, I got hired as editor, and the rest is history. I left here for a year and a half to get some reporting experience at WDTV in Clarksburg.

My start in the business occurred later than most people, but I stuck with it. I’ve learned that persistence pays off, although not always in the way you think it will.

In high school, I was considered the class clown and most outgoing, if that tells you anything about me. I love to travel, ride four-wheelers (ATVs to all you city folk), exercise and like to get lost in cheesy romance novels as often as possible. I love anything and everything country. Also, I have a very chunky, adorable baby named Holden.

Please follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
