Jenny Doren joined News Channel 8 and ABC7/WJLA-TV in May 2012. She’s a “one-woman-show” who shoots, writes and edits her own reports for the weekday nightly newscasts.
Before joining the on-air digital reporting team, Jenny spent two years as a feature reporter for NBC Washington Nonstop and a content producer for News4. She started her broadcasting career at WCIA 3 News, a CBS affiliate and the top-rated station in central Illinois. She covered several national stories there including ousted Governor Rod Blagojevich’s corruption case and the University of Illinois’ clout list admissions scandal.
Jenny received her master’s degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and her bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Michigan. During a quarter of her graduate school studies, Jenny served as a Capitol Hill correspondent for the NBC affiliate in Lansing, Michigan. She’s held internships with Lifetime Television, NBC Chicago, CBS2 Chicago and CBS Evening News.
When Jenny isn’t combing the streets for news, she loves cheering on her Michigan Wolverines, discovering new treasures at Eastern Market and tempting her taste buds throughout the DMV. Jenny hails from the Chicago suburbs.
