Congratulations to CBK Media Management client Jenny Dreasler on becoming the Weekend Evening News Anchor/Reporter at WXIN (FOX) in Indianapolis, IN (market #25). Jenny previously worked at WISH in Indianapolis as a News Reporter/Anchor. While at WISH, Jenny focused on crime reporting. Jenny’s reporting on the mysterious death of a high school football player overturned the coroner’s autopsy results, revealing the teen died of a hereditary disease – not “undetermined” causes. Her series of reports on the case were nominated for a Lower Great Lakes Emmy award.

Before landing in the Circle City, Jenny spent two years as Morning Anchor for KHQA-TV in Quincy, Illinois. During her time at KHQA, Jenny received national attention for her coverage of the Curtis Lovelace murder trial. Jenny assisted CBS Network producers and “48 Hours” reporter Maureen Maher on the case. She was featured extensively on multiple episodes of CBS’ 48 Hours. Jenny received reporter/editorial credits for her work with 48 Hours. During Lovelace’s second trial, Jenny live-tweeted from inside the courtroom, sending out 3,000+ tweets. In June 2017, Jenny was nominated for “Best TV Reporter” by the Illinois Broadcast Association. In 2016, Sinclair Broadcast Group named her live shot covering the aftermath of a tornado that hit Emden, Mo. the “2016 Model Live Shot” for the company. In June 2017, that same live shot was named “Best Spot News” by the Illinois Broadcast Association. In her career, Jenny has two Edward R. Murrow Awards, a Mid-America Emmy, and several other Illinois/Missouri awards to her name.

Jenny started out her career in journalism as an intern reporting at WGEM-TV in 2011, before moving full-time in 2012. Jenny received her bachelor’s degree in Communications and Mass Media Studies from Clayton State University in Morrow, Georgia. Jenny was captain and a four-year starter for the Clayton State soccer team. #TeamCBK
