Breken Terry

Breken Terry is the Shoals Bureau reporter for WAAY.

Title: Reporter

I decided I wanted to be a journalist when I was about 10 years old. I grew up in Trinity, Alabama right down the road from the Shoals. I watched the news growing up and became fascinated with people’s stories.

I attended the University of North Alabama and interned with WAAY 31 from 2011-2012. After I graduated college WAAY 31 offered me a job as a weekend reporter. I worked in Huntsville for about a year before becoming the Shoals Bureau reporter. The move was easy. I love Huntsville but my heart is in the Shoals. I am so proud to serve the people in the Shoals.

I believe God called me into this business. I've always had a gift for making friends and I carry that over into my work. I know I can make a difference and I strive to do that every day. For me working at WAAY 31 isn't about being on TV, it's about connecting with people, sharing their stories, and being a part of this great community. I am a hometown girl, living my dream of helping people right where I grew up. I also love my amazing WAAY 31 family!
