Jordan is a new Wisconsinite. She grew up in a small town outside of Little Rock, Arkansas, and graduated from Benton High School where she started the school’s first TV station.

After graduation, she headed to Northwest Arkansas to study Broadcast Journalism at the University of Arkansas. Jordan was very active in her sorority and joining the university’s TV station, UATV.

By her senior year, she was the station’s main weather anchor and entertainment reporter. Her love for pop culture dates back to the days where her mom would let her read last month’s People Magazines. Before graduating, Jordan covered the state’s biggest film festival, Bentonville Film Festival. She interviewed actors like Geena Davis, Melissa Joan Hart and many more.

Then Wisconsin called. In May 2015, she joined WAOW in Wausau as their Mid-Day Forecaster and Reporter. In the two years in North Central Wisconsin, she covered stories such as the Antigo Prom Shooting, severe weather and of course, some entertainment news.
Jordan has a love for trying new things and after watching the show Dirty Jobs, she came up with the idea to try jobs across the state. "Jordan on the Job" was a news series she is proud of. She tried a zoo keeper, cranberry farmer and getting dirty at the landfill.

Now, Jordan calls Green Bay home. She enjoys watching 90’s TV show such as ER and Will & Grace, trying every cheese she can find and spending time at the lake. Tug at your heart stories are her favorite to cover. She is very excited to keep you updated on social media and report from Packerland!
