Javanté Ingram joined the WTVA News team in January 2013.  A New Orleans native, she's no stranger to the Magnolia State, having graduated cum laude from Belhaven University earning her degree in communication.  Javanté is excited to call Northern Mississippi her home.

During college Javanté completed several internships, including PR and Legislative Liaison work at the Mississippi State Treasurer's Office (where she spent lots of time in the Capitol building), a news department internship at 16WAPT, a production internship at Mississippi Public Broadcasting, and more.  Before graduating Javanté helped organize and moderate a Media Ethics conference with one of the largest panels of PR, Media, and Broadcast representatives from central Mississippi.  She also traveled to Costa Rica and Nicaragua two consecutive years for service work/missions work.  One of her most memorable trips abroad was an extended stay in Paris, France where she indulged in the French cuisine.

Javanté reigned as Miss Teen United States in 2007.  During that year she traveled doing speaking engagements with high school girls and worked with organizations such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the American Heart Association, MADD, Journey of Hope, and more.  During that year, she recognized her love for broadcasting after meeting and discussing news with a New York news anchor.  Shortly after she knew broadcasting would be in her future while visiting a Texas radio station for an interview.

When she is not doing stories for WTVA, Javanté enjoys dancing classical ballet, painting, photography, baking sweets, and volunteering  She's also a huge football enthusiast, and is a proud member of the Saints Who Dat Nation.  If you have a story idea, e-mail her at  You can also send her story ideas on Facebook and Twitter.
