Maddie Thompson is a Producer at WVLT News.
Maddie enjoys telling stories and producing newscasts that make a difference in people's lives. From protecting East Tennessee nurses who weren't getting paid on time to sharing stories that help families stay safe, her interest always lies in serving viewers.
Before arriving in East Tennessee, Maddie interned at WVLT's sister station in Roanoke, Virginia, WDBJ7.
Originally from outside the nation's capital, Maddie graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Multimedia Journalism in 2019. While there, she served as the sports editor of the school newspaper, The Collegiate Times, and covered the historic loss of Virginia Tech's football team to Old Dominion, as well as the entire football and women's lacrosse seasons.
While she'll always be loyal to her hometown, and loves all things Hokies, Nationals, Capitals and Redskins, Maddie loves learning about her new home state and all the great things that East Tennessee has to offer.
