Reporter Jenna Deery joined Channel 9 Eyewitness News in October 2013. She came from Cox Media Group station WHIO, in Dayton, OH where she anchored the weekend newscasts for two years. 

Jenna’s career in television began at Cox Media Group station WFTV in her hometown of Orlando, FL. While she was at WFTV, she worked behind the scenes in nearly every aspect of news production as an Associate Producer. From WFTV, Jenna went on to spend three years at WAKA in Montgomery, AL where she was a weekend anchor and reported during the week. She spent most of her time covering Alabama's capitol city politics which included in-depth reporting of a federal investigation involving a former attorney general resulting in a major overhaul of state ethics laws.

Jenna developed a love for TV news as a child. She would appear in segments of her stepmother’s morning show in Lynchburg, VA. Then, when she was a high school student, Jenna appeared on-camera with her stepmother to promote community outreach initiative campaigns for a Christian cable station in Orlando, FL. 

Jenna is a graduate of Samford University in Birmingham, AL. She loves working on her fitness in Zumba class, volunteering at church and exploring the Queen City.
