Fun Fact: Impractical Jokers is one of my favorite shows.

             Janee’ Avery was born and raised in Farrell, Pennsylvania. It was not until she came to West Virginia University where she discovered her love for journalism.

Initially, she started as a communication major but after taking multiple journalism and public relations classes, she switched majors. Now, going into her last year as a Mountaineer, she is now a Broadcast Journalism major with a minor in Sports Communication.

            Her extracurricular activities consist of working forty hours a week on top of school. When not at school, she is a manager at American Eagle Outfitters in the Morgantown Mall.  She has been working retail for two years and it is something she enjoys because she has always had a passion for fashion.

            During the summer, she interned for WBOY 12 News. Throughout her time being there, she learned some new journalistic skills while also perfecting skills she already obtained from school.  Her internship with WBOY helped her confirm that she is doing exactly what she is meant to do in life. Janee’ loves everything about being a journalist and is excited to see where life will take her with this career choice.
