Tamera McCook is a native of Jackson. Born in 1990, she is the younger of two siblings. Tamera grew up with a very outgoing personality that developed into her passion to excel in broadcast journalism. As a young adolescent, she would often get in trouble at school for talking with others after her work was done. Her teacher would have her grade papers, run errands and even teach class at times to keep her busy. Boredom got the best of her until finally she was tested and accepted into the Open Doors program. This opened many doors for her and expanded her thoughts far beyond what she could have ever imagined. From there, she went on to the APAC (Academic and Performing Arts) program which molded her learning styles and taught her to always think outside the box. Tamera is now a mass communications major at Holmes Community College and she plans to continue her studies upon graduation. Nothing would make her happier than becoming a sports analyst for ESPN. Tamera enjoys attending her sons’ football and basketball games, traveling and being involved in her community.
