Jenna Sachs

Reporter

I joined the FOX6 News team in January 2011; excited to move to Wisconsin's biggest city.

Before Milwaukee, I reported for WFRV in Green Bay. I covered everything from the area's record flooding, to a 17-year-old murder investigation, to the construction of the world's largest igloo. I inevitably became a Packers fan and had the terrible timing to leave Green Bay just two weeks before the Packers won the Super Bowl. Fortunately, my job at FOX6 has been well worth the move!

I also worked at WKBT in La Crosse as a reporter/anchor, and at WISC in Madison as a reporter/on-air intern. Throughout my senior year at UW-Madison, I reported full-time for WISC while also juggling a full load of classes. I'm proud to say I still managed to graduate on time.

I grew up outside St. Paul in Apple Valley, MN and graduated from Eastview High School. Growing up, I wanted to become a writer, but lacked the patience to sit down and write a book. The fast-paced business of TV journalism is much better fit for my personality. I love the stories I am able to tell through my job.

In my free time, I'm usually either reading my kindle or running outside. I like to spend as much time as possible with my husband, who fortunately doesn't mind eating ham sandwiches every night while his wife is off reporting the news. I take full advantage of all the museums, theaters and restaurants Milwaukee has to offer.

Thanks for reading my biography!
