Longtime WMUR Reporter Jennifer Crompton to Retire After Nearly 34 Years

By Kevin Eck 

WMUR reporter Jennifer Crompton has retired after nearly 34 years at the Manchester, N.H. ABC affiliate.

The New Hampshire native started at the station as a producer in 1989, then moved to reporting before getting what the station said was “her dream job as the Seacoast bureau reporter in 1991.” After experiencing vocal cord issues, she went to work as an executive producer, then assistant news director, weekend anchor and reporter, and then news director in 2000.

In 2004, she switched to working part-time producing segments for New Hampshire Chronicle and went back to reporting after her kids were grown.


She recently received a commendation from Governor Chris Sununu for her years of service in the news industry. The station said it will “miss our beloved reporter who could do it all. Congratulations on your retirement, Jennifer!”
