Hi! I’m Jake. I’m a military brat who’s lived all over the place with a desire to tell the stories that other people can’t or won’t. I started off writing opinion pieces for my college newspaper at Texas Christian University and eventually worked my way up to Executive Editor. My work has appeared in WFAA, Book & Film Globe, the Austin American-Statesman, the Victoria Advocate, Bedlam Magazine, Wide Open Country, the Wise County Messenger, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, USA TODAY, TCU 360 and the Rhea-Herald-News.
Now I’m the Senior Audience Growth and Engagement Producer at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Writing and finding out new information is my passion, and I love the feeling of working on a breaking news story. More than that, I love writing feature pieces, movie reviews and pieces on religion and country music. All of those passions are combined in my Substack newsletter, Jacob’s Letter, which you can subscribe to here. You can follow me on Twitter @jakeharris4 and on Letterboxd or you can send me an invite to connect on LinkedIn. Tell me your story.
