Jennifer Jordan

Fox 8 News Anchor/Reporter

Two-time Emmy award winning journalist Jennifer Jordan joined WJW-TV FOX 8 News in January of 2012 as the noon Anchor and reporter for the evening newscasts.

Prior to joining FOX 8, Jennifer worked at WPIX-TV/CW11 as a freelance general assignment reporter.

She also was a fill-in anchor at the station.

In just a few months there, Jennifer reported on some of the biggest stories in the New York metropolitan area. Continuous breaking news coverage included the mid-air plane/tourist chopper collision over the Hudson River that made national headlines.

Jennifer was also the lead reporter on the deadly shooting of a Jersey City police officer and the attempted car bombing in Times Square.

Jennifer joined PIX News from WNYW/Fox 5 and WWOR-TV/My 9. While working for New York city's only duopoly, Jennifer worked as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor.

Jennifer traveled to New Orleans for the unveiling of the USS New York, naval ship built with steel from the World Trade Center. In an exclusive report, Jennifer also exposed security flaws at some of New York City's most prominent tourist attractions, including the Empire State building.

Jennifer was also lead reporter on the NYPD police shooting of an unarmed man killed by cops on what would have been his wedding day.
Before Fox & My 9, Jennifer was a Westchester correspondent and general assignment reporter for WCBS-TV also in New York. As part of the award winning team, Jennifer was nominated for two Emmy awards for the mass transit strike. Previously, Jennifer anchored the 10 pm newscasts at News 12 Westchester.

While there, she earned two Emmy Awards, one for On-Camera achievement.
The second for a multi-part, hard-hitting investigation titled, "Predator Next Door." Earlier, Jordan anchored the weekend newscasts at WFIE-TV in Evansville, Indiana. Prior to that, she was a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor for WBKO-TV in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Jennifer's career began as a field producer at WSOC-TV in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Jennifer is a graduate of Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina where she received B.S. in Broadcast Journalism.

She is also a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She was inducted into Peekskill High School's alumni Hall of Fame in 2003.

Jennifer has also received numerous community awards for her dedication to covering stories in her neighborhood and volunteering for a number of local charities.
