Christopher Covert is a photojournalist at WVLT News.
He is from Sevierville, Tennessee, and a graduate of Gatlinburg-Pittman High School. He contributes to WVLT News This Morning as an editor and photojournalist. Christopher also operates the WVLT News Drone.
His passion for television started blooming the moment he picked up the family video camera. Then it grew during his years at Gatlinburg-Pittman High School.
With the help of his teachers, that's where he started to learn the process of telling stories through video. "The staff of wonderful teachers encouraged me to enter into the field I am in today. But let's not forget my wonderful friends and family who helped me achieve my goals."
After finishing high school Christopher attended Pellissippi State Community College where he received an Associates Degree in video production.
Christopher is an apprentice falconer who likes to explore old fire towers and camp in the national forest.
