Jennifer Bellamy is an award-winning anchor at 11Alive in Atlanta. She joined 11Alive in April 2015 as a reporter and now anchors 11Alive News at 5 & 11pm.
A native of the Atlanta area, Jennifer grew up in Gwinnett County before college and her career took her away for a short time.
“Working in my hometown is a dream come true,” said Jennifer. “I feel so blessed to tell stories in the communities that raised me and helped shape me into the person I have become.”
Jennifer began her career in Macon, Georgia at 13WMAZ, where she reported, produced and served as a fill-in anchor. While there, she also hosted segments, responding to viewer questions weekly through "Get Answers," and awarding the Golden Spatula to restaurants for cleanliness and reporting on low health inspection scores.
From there, she joined News19 in Columbia, South Carolina where she worked as a general assignment and political reporter and was later promoted to weekend anchor. While there, she interviewed several presidential candidates including Herman Cain and former Texas Governor Rick Perry, as well as former South Carolina Governor and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.
Jennifer was also part of the News19 team awarded a 2015 Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards for Outstanding Local Television Investigative Reporting. She contributed to the continuing coverage on South Carolina's Department of Social Services after the deaths of children and reports of problems at the state agency. Her work covering the agency also won a South Carolina Broadcasters Association STAR award.
She has also been nominated for several regional Emmy Awards through the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Southeast Chapter, including a nomination for outstanding anchor.
A proud Georgia Bulldog, Jennifer graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Broadcast News and a minor in Spanish.
When she is not reporting, Jennifer loves cheering on the Bulldogs and the Falcons, along with any other Atlanta team with red in their colors. She also enjoys music, traveling, eating out and spending time with her family and friends. Jennifer is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a national, non-profit, service sorority.
