Ed Crump - Senior reporter at ABC11 WTVD
Ed Crump came to ABC11 Eyewitness News in September of 1984. He is our senior reporter assigned to the Raleigh newsroom.

On his first day on the job, he was sent to cover Hurricane Diana. He spent the rest of that fall shadowing Senator Jesse Helms as he ran against Governor Jim Hunt, which is widely remembered as the most expensive and possibly dirtiest campaign in Senate history.

While attending college, Ed worked in radio and had an internship at Georgia Educational Television covering the Georgia Legislature and reporting on a nightly news show called The Lawmakers. Ed received his first full-time commercial employment at WMAZ-TV and radio, the CBS station in Macon, GA. There, he served as a reporter, weekend anchor, and producer. In 1981, he accepted a job as a reporter at WTVC-TV, an ABC affiliate in Chattanooga, TN. Ed attended the University of Georgia from 1975 to 1979, where he met his wife, Donna.

He graduated from the UGA Henry Grady School of Journalism, which awards one of the most prestigious honors in broadcasting -- the Peabody Award. He and his wife have one daughter, Kayla.
