Tell us about your business/organization.

WTHI-TV is a CBS, FOX, CW, Ion and myNetwork television affiliate serving Western Indiana and Eastern Illinois from its studio in downtown Terre Haute. WTHI-TV was the first television station in the Terre Haute market opening in 1954. It was founded by local businessman and Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner Tony Hulman, owner of radio station WTHI (1480 AM and 99.9 FM). Currently, WTHI TV is owned by Heartland Media.

WTHI TV was first on the air, first with film, first with videotape, first with live capability, first with a computerized newsroom, first with digital news gathering equipment, first with satellite uplink, first with live, local Doppler radar and first with local high definition broadcasts. This tradition of leadership is one we’re proud of and speaks volumes about the quality and dedication of our employees.

For the past four years I have worked as an Account Executive, helping businesses develop and implement marketing campaigns across both television and digital platforms.

Why do you serve as an Ambassador?

I joined the Ambassadors because they offer a true sense of community. This group is the first to greet new businesses, celebrate milestones and give a platform for engagement opportunities. The ambassadors are comprised of a variety of men and women from different backgrounds who are like minded in the sense that they want to make our community the best place it can be.

Thank you Jenny for serving as an Ambassador through your commitment and dedication to the Chamber!
