Frankie Jupiter joined WDBJ7 in April of 2013, as a reporter. He’s no stranger to the commonwealth, joining the team from the CBS affiliate in Charlottesville.
Originally from New Orleans, Frankie graduated from Columbia College Chicago. That’s where he also won an Emmy in the student category for the 2008 presidential campaign.
Before heading to Virginia, Frankie worked previously as a production assistant at WVUE, the Fox affiliate in New Orleans.
Though only starting in the business a few years ago, he has covered stories from earthquakes to the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
In his free time Frankie tries to cook; he says unfortunately he didn’t inherit that skill from his hometown.
