TJ Werre


TJ has been with WJTV since August of 2010 and is no stranger to the South. A Navy brat growing up, his family’s last stop was in Millington, TN, just north of Memphis. He lived there from 7th grade through high school. From there he went on to The University of Memphis.

TJ graduated from Memphis in May of 2008, where he was a sports reporter for the school’s independent newspaper ‘The Daily Helmsman.’ He was also the sports director of ‘Insight,’ the school’s weekly newscast.

After college, TJ worked as a production assistant at WREG in Memphis before landing his first full-time job with KAAL in Rochester, MN. He worked as news photographer for 10 months before getting his dream job as the weekend sports anchor in October of 2009.

In August of 2013, he married his wife Sue Ann. They live in Jackson with their two King Charles Cavaliers, Liza and Charlie. In his free time, you can find him working on his golf game and spending time with family and friends scattered all over the country.

TJ loves telling a good story. He’s won awards both in college and professionally for his work. Send him an email at, give him a like or a follow him on Twitter at if you have any story ideas.
