Jamie Thompson joined the 9&10 News Team in May 2007.
Jamie grew up in the Upper Peninsula and graduated from Sault Area High School in 2003. She attended Northern Michigan University and studied broadcasting, political science and public relations. As a Wildcat, she was active in “Public Eye News” at WNMU-TV and earned several Michigan Association of Broadcasting awards.
After years as a news producer and working with the promotions team, she is currently executive producer of ‘the four’ — a lifestyle program that allows Northern Michigan’s News leader to find and spread the good that exists locally and beyond. Along with producing the hour-long show, Jamie brings you “Producer Picks” daily, live from behind the scenes in the control room.
Outside of work, Jamie lives in Cadillac and is a busy mom of two boys and a dog. She prides herself in being the “Newsroom Yooper”. In her spare time, you can find her visiting family in the UP and on adventures around Northern Michigan with her boys. You can also spot her on the ice at the hockey rink, or trying to find her way to the front at concerts.
