Francesca Weems joined the WLBT/Fox 40 Sports Team in October 2013. Prior to coming to Mississippi, she was a Production Assistant/Field Producer for Comcast Bay Area and a freelance sideline reporter for Comcast Hometown Network covering high school, collegiate and professional sports teams throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
In addition to Comcast SportsNet and Comcast Hometown Network, Francesca has experience working with ESPN and San Francisco Bay Area stations CBS 5 and ABC 7. She also has written, produced, and edited content for UC Berkeley Athletics' web and television productions.
A Hawaii native, Francesca attended the University of California, Berkeley where she was a member of the track and field team competing in the 400 meters, 800 meters, and 1600-meter relay. Francesca earned her Bachelor's in Mass Communications and her Master's in Education from the university. She takes pride in being able to provide viewers with the angle of a student-athlete in her reports and productions.
When Francesca is not working you can catch her running - often preparing for her next half marathon.
