Jennifer Holton joined FOX 13 News in March 2018 as a multimedia journalist. 

Prior to working at WTVT, she spent three years as an anchor-reporter for WJHG-WECP in Panama City, Florida. During her time in the Panhandle, Jennifer covered Campaign 2016, the presidential inauguration, and moderated several debates and town halls. She also traveled to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to cover the military commissions for the alleged 9/11 co-conspirators.

During the first 100 days of the Trump Administration, Jennifer created a weekly bi-partisan segment for her evening broadcast called “Week in the White House.”

In 2017, she was awarded by the Associated Press for her story on two World War II veterans reunited 70 years after the pilot was saved by Tuskegee Airmen over war-torn Germany. 

Before moving to the Sunshine State, Jennifer worked in the Fox News Channel DC Bureau as the executive assistant and online reporter for Greta Van Susteren.

A Cleveland, Ohio native, she is a graduate of the Tim Russert Department of Communications at John Carroll University. 

When she’s not reporting, you can find her trying out Tampa’s newest restaurants, running along the Riverwalk or traveling to new sights in Florida!
