I’m Taylor Lumpkin, your new Weekday Reporter and Weekend Producer. I am so happy to be back closer to home and live in the Eastern Shore area! I actually used to vacation in Ocean City with my family all the time when I was younger.
I previously worked as a news reporter and producer at WAGM-TV in Presque Isle, Maine. I was born and raised in Lumberton, New Jersey where I discovered my passion for news during my years at Rancocas Valley Regional High School. I attended Temple University in Philadelphia (Go Owls!), where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism in 2015. I was involved with Temple’s news station (Temple Update) and studied abroad in South Africa in July of 2014 where I stayed in both Johannesburg and Cape Town and worked as a foreign correspondent. I also interned at the Philadelphia Weekly as an editorial intern in Center City.
When I’m not reporting or producing on the weekends, I’m usually with my dog Gracie at the dog park, spending time with my family and friends, binge-watching shows on Netflix, going to Sixers games, or blasting Broadway songs in my apartment and singing at the top of my lungs.
