POSTED: 1:36 PM Jun 04 2012   UPDATED: 4:33 PM May 26 2014

Jaime McCutcheon is an award-winning journalist who is thrilled to be back home in the South that she loves. You will find her anchoring FOX Eastern Carolina News at 10 p.m.

Jaime was born in the Florida Keys (yes, people are born there) but then grew up in northern Georgia. Jaime's job most recently took her to WOWT in Omaha, Neb., but there have also been stops at WMAZ-TV in Macon, Ga., and KDLT-TV in Sioux Falls, S.D. Jaime has also spent time living in England and Germany. Jaime is a graduate of the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia, so please forgive her when she wears an annoying amount of red and black during football season.

After five years land locked in Nebraska, you better believe you’ll find Jaime at the beach and on the water whenever she has some spare time. With her will be her husband, Ben, and young daughter, Georgia. Jaime says she can’t wait to meet the people of New Bern and the surrounding area. So if you see her out and about, please walk up and say hi!
