Jake Hoot sits down with Becky Magura for “One on One” airing at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3 on WCTE.

WCTE Upper Cumberland PBS will showcase the “One on One with Becky Magura” special featuring Jake Hoot on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 6:30 p.m. to talk about his journey on “The Voice”.

Hoot is originally from Corpus Christi, TX, and born to Baptist missionaries but moved to Cookeville at the age of 20 to attend Tennessee Tech University as a walk-on football player.

Hoot was selected during the blind auditions to compete in the four-time Emmy Award-winning singing competition in its 17th season, airing Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC at 7 p.m. During Hoot’s blind audition, Kelly Clarkson, the “American Idol” alum, who has won twice in a row for seasons 14 and 15, chose Hoot to be part of her team on national television. Clarkson joins Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, and John Legend as returning coaches.

“It was such a joy to sit down with Jake for a special episode to air throughout the month of November to talk about his experience thus far on ‘The Voice’ as a talented musical artist,” said WCTE President & CEO Becky Magura. “I feel confident that all of Cookeville and the Upper Cumberland will be cheering for him as he enters into the Knockout Rounds.”

Hoot is currently writing new music and performing until he heads back to Burbank, CA, to be on stage at “The Voice” to compete. He is a newly single dad and has a 4 year-old daughter named Macy.
