Hailey Hunter joined the WJTV sports team in February of 2020. She is originally from Muskegon, Michigan and comes from a big hockey family. She essentially grew up at the hockey rink where her dad coached, and twin brother played competitively. In fact, she learned to skate before she could walk.
Hailey was captain of her Division 1 golf team at Ohio University and takes pride in being a Bobcat. She turned professional and played on TOUR for a short time after she graduated but soon learned her true passion lay with being a sports journalist.
Hailey worked in golf for two years as a reporter for the LPGA TOUR before making her way to Jackson, MS. She enjoys playing golf and hockey (or really any form of competition she can find) and enjoys spending time outdoors; especially at the Ross Barnett Reservoir.
