Thousands of people across Middle Tennessee wake up every morning with Jamie Reese. Lucky them. As live reporter on the red-eye shift for NewsChannel 5 This Morning, Reese greets the groggy viewer with news that broke sometime between the last midnight snack and the first gargling of Listerine. If all she had were the looks of a morning anchor, that would be plentyshe’s even easier on the eyes than her coffee-hour competitor Soledad O’Brien. What makes her a crush is her confidence and cool-handed skill, which comes through even in her no-bull directness on-air. At her previous gig in Tallahassee, she covered the backwash of the historically chaotic 2000 presidential election; here, she was among the first on the scene to report the death of Johnny Cash. We should all be so sharp reporting to work at 2 a.m. At the very least, we should all have a Jamie Reese waiting for us when we open our eyes.
