Tori Gessner

Tori is excited to have joined the WBTW News13 team in May 2018. She covers a wide range of stories on the Grand Strand during the week.

Before joining News13, Tori attended the University of South Carolina where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Fashion Merchandising. While in college, she interned at WIS-TV in Columbia, SC, where she learned the ins and outs of the broadcast news industry. During Tori’s final semester at USC, she worked as a reporter and producer for Carolina News. She was also an active member of her sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma.

Although she’s originally from Virginia Beach, Tori feels right at home in Myrtle Beach with the shoreline close by and the beautiful weather.

When she’s not running around town with her camera, you can find Tori relaxing by the beach or pool, or eating out at local restaurants.
