Growing up in Pittsburgh, Jaime Baker knew from an early age that she wanted to work in sports. Years later, she's excited to call Altoona her home. Jaime joined the WTAJ team in July of 2014 as the weekend sports anchor and reporter. She returns to PA after a 5-year stint in West Virginia, working as a sports reporter in Charleston and a sports director in Bluefield.

Originally from the land of the Black and Gold, Jaime graduated from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University. In that time, she worked as the sideline reporter for the Ohio Sports Network, covering the Bobcats football team. She also worked on "Gridiron Glory," an Emmy Award winning high school football show.

Jaime looks forward to covering some of the teams she has followed her whole life: Penn State, the Steelers, the Penguins and the Pirates. She's also very excited about getting involved with the local high school teams.

When she's not working, you can find Jaime working out, attempting to bake absurd things from Pinterest, or catching up on whatever series she's watching on Netflix.
