Jamie Ward joined the ABC12 Morning News team in May of 2014 and is thrilled to call the beautiful state of Michigan home!
This Pittsburgh-native and Duquesne University graduate caught the "news bug" early on, but has come a long way since anchoring the morning announcements on Bee-TV in high school! Having the privilege to bring Mid-Michigan the morning news is a dream come true.
Jamie got her start in the news business as a producer at WTRF-TV in Wheeling, West Virginia. She quickly worked her way up to anchor the 5 and 6 p.m. weekday newscasts. Her love for telling stories wasn't born in the Mountain State, but it sure was fueled there. Jamie spent three years in the Ohio Valley, following everything from local government and crime, to the Marcellus Shale gas boom, and high profile court cases.
Most rewarding, were the stories of people doing remarkable things to make their communities a better place. It's thanks to them, that the Ohio Valley will always have a very special place in Jamie's heart.
Her love for adventure and trying new things may be no match for everything that "Pure Michigan" has to offer!
During her spare time, Jamie loves to check out new restaurants, sharpen her ballroom dancing skills, travel and spend time outdoors.
