Hi! I am Jackie Green, I grew up in Portage, Michigan where I graduated high school from Portage Northern (GO HUSKIES!) From there I attended Ferris State University where I was a 4 year varsity athlete on the cross country and track team. I was an applied speech communication major- talking was always my strong suit.
My last year of college I worked for our schools television series, “Ferris in Focus” as the host of the weekly entertainment news segment. I also did a few internships in radio and television and got my first job at a radio station here in Grand Rapids, after 4 years on-air there I started here at FOX17.
I have always loved being the one to tell everyone “what’s going on.” Here on FOX17 Morning News I am “on the scene” all over West Michigan. You can find me at local restaurant openings, new fitness classes, and fun events around town. The more unique the story, the better!
When I am not working I run a lot, I have competed in 6 marathons, and 15 half marathons. I plan to do many more. I also am an avid reader and love a good mystery. I love being involved in our community theatre and have been on stage in Civic Theatre’s production of “Night of the living Dead,” Circle Theatre’s “Cabaret,” and Actors Theatre “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.”
