Jack Roper

Posted: Updated:

Jack Roper started his broadcast career in radio. After several years in local Carolina radio, Jack moved to Washington, NC as a weather anchor and children's show host at WITN-TV. He then headed out west to KENS-TV in San Antonio, TX where he was also weather anchor. He returned to South Carolina in 1986 to join the News Channel 7 team as a weather anchor.

It's no surprise that Jack has been awarded the South Carolina Broadcasters Association's Local Broadcast Personality of the Year award three times. Locally, readers of the Greenville News have also chosen him as Favorite Upstate Television Personality for two years. Roper is the former host of the program "Kidsizzle with Jack Roper," which received the Best Children's Program award five times from the South Carolina Broadcasters Association. In 2003, Jack received an Emmy for his weather presentation in the News Channel 7 5pm newscast. Jack is now the on air host for News Channel 7's Caring for the Carolinas Campaign. This campaign has given Jack more time to be out in the community and doing what he enjoys.

Jack is a native of Union, SC, a graduate of the University of South Carolina and in 2007, he received his meteorology degree from Mississippi State University. Jack spends his time outside of work performing his magic shows at area festivals and events. Jack also makes his Positive Attitude Speech at churches, civic groups, and businesses.  Jack is also a musician, he regularly performs with his own band.

Community service, hard work, and dedication are what make Jack Roper one of the area's most popular television personalities. Your Carolina with Jack and Kimberly is a great opportunity that will allow Jack more time to be out there in communities doing what he loves to do.
