Jennifer Hammond Biography

Jennifer Hammond is an American Sports Reporter for Fox 2. She has been working for Fox 2 since joining the station in 1997.

When Hammond was five years old her dad first put a microphone in her hand. The talk aimed at entertaining her shy older sister became a confident utterance: “Hello Sports fans!” It’s hard to believe that she knew where she had hoped her future would take him. When Hammond was in junior high school watching Monday night football and typing out lineups, there was no turning back. The only career she would imagine for herself was as a sports reporter on TV though the road to get there wasn’t nearly as direct.

Jennifer Hammond Career

Hammond’s first on-camera experience came broadcasting the morning announcements at Seaholm High School in Birmingham where she grew up, and by the time she arrived at Western Michigan University she had snagged a lucrative gig in the Sports Information Department, where she covered everything from football to women’s gymnastics. She was working full time at radio stations WQLR/WQSN while going to college which helped her to polish her on-air product – but did little to further her sports resume. 

She took a leap of faith and moved to Chicago six months after her graduation and took a job working as a receptionist at an audio production company – where she could meet people in the business and upgrade his audition tape. Less than a year later she finally got a break in radio and received an opportunity to try out at Shadow Traffic after two weeks of unpaid training. With no guarantees of a position in the end she landed a full-time job. The job lasted about three years and blossomed into another on-camera opportunity at CLTV in Oakbrook, Illinois doing morning traffic reports at the key wall. When the morning sports anchor declared that she wasn’t hip on reading the morning sports, she took over and finally got back in the game doing what she really loved. 

By late Spring of 1994, she was at a crossroads, eager to take the next step as a sports reporter working in the field – at the same time Detroit’s first all-sports talk station was getting ready to hit the airwaves and she wouldn’t be denied. She drove home for a couple of days and called Program Director Lorna Gladstone at the Fan to set up a meeting: she was hired on the spot. 

She spent the next three years covering everything in Detroit from the Lions to the Tigers and MSU and UM football and hoops before earning a freelance job with Fox 2 to cover the Lions pregame and Red Wings Stanley Cup runs.

In November of 1997, a shift in management at Fox 2 landed her in a full-time job in the sports department as the number three – meaning she would be out in the field covering everything from the NFL to the College World Series. It’s hard to believe it has been more than two decades since she landed her dream job, and it keeps getting better. She has had so many amazing experiences and has even earned two Emmy awards for her work as a sports journalist. What is even more priceless is the constant feedback and interaction with views and Detroit sports fans who make her job so rewarding.  

She is more committed than ever to providing interesting and informative stories to people – Their Fox 2 Viewers – and hope that one day She will be covering a Lions Super Bowl! In the meantime, She is committed to serving h incredible community and mentoring the future broadcasters of tomorrow!
