Jeremy Campbell is an investigative reporter focused on impactful, innovative storytelling. In the past decade his work has changed lives, changed laws and reached millions of viewers.
He helped reinvent the formula for local news with “Atticus,” an investigative team that crafts docu-series reports about hard to talk about issues. Their primary goal: Change the world.
"Mothers Matter" highlighted the disparent increase in deaths among black moms in America. “Charlie Foxtrot” got the attention of Washington when Campbell presented the investigation to a special panel at the U.S. Capitol. The head of the VA cited that presentation as his inspiration for giving veterans a second chance at benefits. “Selling Girls” exposed the inner workings of America’s sex trafficking industry. The U.S. State Department took notice, including Campbell in an educational tour for international journalists on how to tackle the tough subject matter of trafficking. "The Triangle" exposed a dramatic spike in heroin-related deaths in Atlanta’s wealthy suburbs.
In 2019 he released his first podcast, "Number 1500." It offers a rare, unfiltered account as Campbell witnesses the 1500th execution in the United States.
To tell a good story, Campbell has traveled from the coast of California to the South Lawn of the White House to the Nile River in Africa. He was among a small group of journalists selected by NASA to document the final space shuttle landing from the runway. He’s covered the controversy, tragedy and change - from the Casey Anthony trial and the Trayvon Martin shooting, the 2011 tornado Super Outbreak across the South, Hurricane Harvey in Texas, to the Obama Inaugural in Washington D.C. and Trump campaign trail in 2016.
Campbell's reporting career began in the winds of change that blew alongside Hurricane Katrina. He created a documentary about New Orleans life after the storm that led to his first on-air job as a Reporter/Anchor at KLFY in Lafayette, Louisiana. He’s also reported for WBMA in Birmingham, WTVT in Tampa and is currently based at WXIA in Atlanta. He’s appeared on CNN, FOX News Channel, MSNBC, The Weather Channel, CBS News and on stations in TEGNA’s 41 markets nationwide.
Campbell is a two-time recipient of the National Murrow Award for Innovation. He’s been honored with twenty-one regional EMMY® Awards, seven regional Edward R. Murrow Awards, two Gracies, a Cronkite Award for political reporting and back to back Service to America Awards from the NAB. He’s been named “Best Reporter” by the AP in Georgia, Florida and Alabama and is a three-time Atlanta Press Club Awards honoree.
Off-air, Campbell is an Adjunct Professor, teaching Storytelling at the University of Florida’s College of Journalism. He also serves as President/CEO of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Southeast Chapter, where he’s come full circle after receiving the NATAS Scholarship while an undergrad at Auburn University.
Campbell lives in Atlanta with his partner, Mike.
