The credentials Annette Nole Hall needed to work for Tennessee’s Wild Side were collected over the course of 30 years.  She worked her way up through the ranks of radio and television news, landing one of her favorite jobs as a reporter for WSMV-TV in Nashville.  She was called on to produce for ABC’s Good Morning America and World News Tonight, free-lanced for CNN, CBS and MSNBC, was hired by FEMA to work on the Federal Agency’s News Desk and won numerous awards including a Mid-South Regional Emmy.

But Annette says, “Looking back over all that time, resumes and bios make it sound more impressive than it ever really felt.”  Annette credits Tennessee’s Wild Side for changing the course of her life, allowing her to raise her children, work side by side with her husband, introducing her to some of her dearest friends and returning her to a childhood passion she had for horses.  In fact, more often than not, you can find Annette out in the pasture with Star, Judah, Shadow, Gideon, Moses, Willow and a little donkey she calls, “Joe Joe.”

“It was a Tennessee’s Wild Side story on the Buffalo River Trail Ride where I met friends who convinced me I was capable of pursuing a new dream; and their confidence in me gave me the courage to do it.” Annette will also tell you from the very first inaugural fly-fishing story in Gatlinburg, she was hooked on being a Wild Side Guide.  “God has given me so many opportunities and I am thankful to be working for such an amazing show.”

Annette lives outside Nashville with her husband Steve, who is the producer for Tennessee’s Wild Side, her teenage son Ezekiel and their two rescue dogs Zadie and Liberty.  When she’s not producing Wild Side stories, Annette offers Exclusive Equine Experiences at a ranch near her home.  She is a ghost writer, currently working on her second book, and she writes an inspirational website for women at www.keziahcarrie.com.
