Jennifer Herron Steps Down As Announcer For Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree
Long-time announcer for the Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree, Jennifer Herron, is exiting the show after 18 years.
As the announcer of country music’s second longest running radio show, Herron took over after Carol Lee Cooper’s retirement, hosting her first show alongside Sonny and Bobby Osborne.
“I shared that stage with so many wonderful people,” Herron reminisces. “Dancing with Ranger Doug, Jack Clement and Charlie Louvin on stage, helping Lynn Anderson with her costume changes as we cut-up only as two cowgirls can do, watching Ray Price give my husband a thumbs up from behind the stage, playing off of Mel Tillis in one of his fun bits, having Lily Tomlin drop-in on the show and surprise us all. The list of stars on the show goes on and on.”
Herron will remain in Nashville as she continues to work on television and radio projects. She will also be on the road with Bobby Marquez.
