Mom and Executive Director and Host Of ChannelMom
“I used to enjoy the fame that comes from being on TV, but then I became ‘just a mom.’ When I left my job as TV reporter, I realized the travesty that unfolds in this country every day–our world thinks celebrities and CEOs are more important than moms. Our mainstream media does NOT honor moms or families. So, ChannelMom Media is creating a “mom revolution” on our airwaves and through our service and outreach to moms on-the-ground. Join us and be better for it. And be blessed!”
Jenny had an extensive career in TV news, where she worked as an on-air reporter, producer and writer. She has worked for ABC News, PBS, FNN (now CNBC) as well as NBC, ABC, CBS and WB affiliates in major U.S. cities. She won an Emmy for her reporting on the 1996 U.S. Presidential race.
Jenny has interviewed and posed questions to two presidents, as well as many other politicians and celebrities. She’s covered high-profile news stories, including the OJ Simpson trial, the Columbine massacre and a number of Presidential campaigns.
Jenny is passionate about the important role of mothers in modern America. She believes the role of moms is often overshadowed by popular culture values… like the spotlight we place on celebrities and the celebrity lifestyle. Jenny wants moms everywhere to understand their mothering role is invaluable to our society and their role as “mom” is priceless in the eyes of God.
