Julie Edwards, CWCE Co-Host
Julie began her career in 1993 after graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. What sparked Julie’s interest in journalism was a term paper she wrote in college about an individual influential in getting school books for needy children.
Upon graduation, Julie worked as a reporter in Anniston, Alabama and later as an anchor at stations in Vermont and Indiana. Julie is the producer and host of 3 Plus You, an entertainment program which airs weekdays on WRCB-TV. She was selected to co-host the CWCE program because of her pleasant reputation and her ability to engage with her viewers.
Julie says “Having reported on scores of accidents and been on accident scenes as a reporter at the television station, it was great to learn all of the plans that the State of Tennessee has in place when an employee is injured. I found that when an employer is prepared for any circumstance, that the process is much smoother. Looking back on these accidents in the news, it gave me comfort to know that the Workers Compensation system is in place. Every employer needs to learn our curriculum so that there are no misunderstandings.
When researching Tennessee Governor Haslam’s Workers Compensation initiatives, it was clear that when reforming the system there had to be an education system; a credentialing system that worked and rewarded the designee. Our team is enthusiastic in helping create the best outcomes for all stakeholders.”
Julie and her husband, Mark, live in Chattanooga, TN and they have two daughters.
