Jeremy Ross


With a jump across Lake Michigan, Jeremy Ross landed in Milwaukee and it's a leap he's happy to make.

Jeremy joined FOX6 in December of 2005 moving from Michigan to Wisconsin. He's covered The Milwaukee Police Department, spent weeks in Green Bay following the Packers 2008 playoff run and Brett Favre's final moments in "Titletown."

During 2008 he won The Milwaukee Press Club's best feature award. Prior to Milwaukee, Jeremy worked for the NBC and FOX affiliates in Lansing, MI where he won top honors by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters. Jeremy received multiple awards from the Michigan Associated Press, ranging from breaking news to feature reporting to investigative journalism.

In 2001, Jeremy worked in Washington D.C. for the Medill News Service as a political correspondent. He received his Masters in Journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism and completed his undergraduate degree at The University of Michigan where he caught "the broadcasting bug." At U of M he was a play-by-play broadcaster for Michigan Hockey while working at the student cable and radio stations.
