Peter Jump was born and raised in Manchester, England. Prior to his reporting for WMRA he worked on the other side of the microphone for many years – beginning as a Public Affairs Officer for the British Embassy in Washington DC. In addition to his reporting for WMRA he conducts media training workshops for non-profits and businesses, both large and small.
Peter has been a Charlottesville-area resident for over 25 years, and now lives in Earlysville. He continues his decade-long quest to improve his tennis game, and every summer keeps a keen eye on his mailbox for an invite from Wimbledon.
