Zack Rickens is a Sports Reporter at WVLT.
He arrived in East Tennessee after spending two years on the bayous of North Louisiana. Zack began his career in Idaho (not to be confused with Iowa).
Originally from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Zack realized in high school that the only future he had in sports would be watching and reporting from the sidelines.
Zack attended Penn State University where he gained invaluable experience covering sports for the Emmy Award-winning Centre County Report. While in school, Zack was nominated for and won two 2015 Mid-Atlantic College Emmy Awards and a Pennsylvania Associated Press award for Best Sports Photography.
Zack is thrilled to report on the Vols and the countless high school athletes who make area sports so appealing.
