Oklahoma's Own: Terry Hood

Terry Hood

Terry Hood co-anchors the 6 and 10 p.m. weeknight editions of News On 6 along with Scott Thompson.

Hood joined News On 6 team in 1987 and is an Oklahoman by choice. She was born in Casiqua, Venezuela, and grew up in Colorado. She graduated from a small high school in western Colorado and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Colorado. After a short stint as a newspaper reporter in a Denver suburb, Hood worked for both radio and television stations in Casper, Wyoming.

Hood's writing and reporting have earned a number of awards from professional organizations and associations, including an Emmy award in 2008 for coverage of the December 2007 ice storm.

Hood's concern for children and interest in parenting issues are evident in her community involvement on behalf of News On 6. She volunteers for many different organizations in her spare time and is an avid supporter of The March of Dimes. She serves as a board member of the Green Country chapter and has chaired the annual WalkAmerica event which raises funds to support the fight against birth defects.

Her interest extends to environmental issues as well. In 1998, Hood wrote and produced a series on Yellowstone National Park and the park's connection to Tulsa. In 1999, she was nominated for an Emmy for her series on a rare and deadly amoeba in Oklahoma lakes.

Hood and her husband, Ed, are the proud parents of two boys, Bryce and Andrew.
