Jen McDonald

She’s back! Multi-award winner journalist Jennifer McDonald is together again with her Fox 5 family. Jen helped launch Fox5 in 2008, making her mark reporting live on the evening shows.

During her hiatus, she got married and had Irish twins (two children born less than a year apart, Finn & Fiona). It didn’t take long for Jen to return to her passion of reporting on the news.

Jen traveled to Williamsport, Penn. with Park View Little Leaguers for their world champion win in 2009. She also spent countless hours reporting on Chelsea King and Amber Dubois, two young ladies who touched the hearts of all San Diegans. Military stories are some of Jen’s favorites because her husband and sister are both active duty.

Prior to joining KSWB-TV, Jen worked in Bakersfield, Calif. and Yuma, Ariz. holding titles from news director to sports anchor. She’s the proud recipient of seven Associated Press awards.

A graduate of Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Journalism, Jen was born and raised in Arizona. She loves the beach and is so excited to be back in San Diego!
