Hi, glad you're here! I'm Madisen.
The job? Weekend Anchor & Multimedia Journalist at WATE 6 On Your Side in Knoxville, Tennessee.
East Tennessee is easy to love. Go Vols! It's a privilege to tell stories that matter to East Tennesseans. From rebuilding efforts in the Smoky Mountains of Sevier County after the 2016 wildfires, to a community rallying around the legacy of Emma Walker, to the impactful trials related to the 2007 killings of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, to notable moments in history for the state.
"How did a Californian end up here?"
Born & raised in Central California, moved to Los Angeles for college, then Knoxville. Even though I adopted some orange (Go Big Orange) I'll always be Trojan at heart -- Fight On!

Story? I bet you do. Let's talk.
