Thrilled to be back home in Florida, Jennifer Jones joined the WINK News team in December 2013.
Jennifer left South Florida, where she grew up in Boca Raton, to attend college at Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!). After graduating, she got her start in TV news behind the scenes as an associate producer at KTVK-TV in Phoenix.
In 2007, Jennifer moved to the on-camera side of broadcast journalism, becoming a weekend sports anchor and reporter for KSWT, the CBS Affiliate, in Yuma, AZ. She covered MMA, crime, border issues and the 7.2 earthquake that rattled Calexico, Calif. and Mexicali, Mexico on Easter Sunday in 2010. During her tenure at KSWT, Jennifer became the Executive Producer and anchored the 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. newscasts during the week.
Now, you can find her reporting about what's going on in Collier County.
When she's not in the field, Jennifer enjoys living in Naples (a.k.a. Paradise), watching sports, eating, spending time with friends, family and her two chihuahuas. She also loves to kick up her heels and dance. Oh, and on Sundays during football season, you can catch Jennifer rooting for the Miami Dolphins. Fins up!
Jennifer would love to hear from you! If you have any story ideas for her, don't hesitate to email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also connect with her on Facebook or Twitter.
