Jamie Ostroff

Jamie joined the WINK News team in October 2013. She's thrilled to be back in the Sunshine State, as it's where she feels most at home. Jamie attended the University of Miami and got her start in local news at WSVN, nearby Fox affiliate.

Jamie's itch to report started early. A Washington, D.C. native, politics and current affairs have always been a major part of Jamie's life. Even in elementary school, Jamie submitted all of her projects in the form of TV news reports.

Before heading to WINK, Jamie worked as an anchor and reporter in Idaho Falls, Idaho. There, she covered everything from the nation's largest wildfires of 2012 to crippling federal budget cuts at Yellowstone National Park. The mountains were lovely, but Jamie is much more comfortable on water skis than snow skis.

When she's not working, you'll likely find Jamie at the gym, exploring local eateries, cheering on the Miami Hurricanes or just out and about with her dog. Feel free to say hello, or tweet her at @Jamie_WINK.
