Jacqueline Francis joined the Fox Illinois news team in June as a Multimedia Journalist.
She was born and raised in the Metro Detroit area and is excited to be back in the Midwest after spending the last four years in Texas attending Southern Methodist University (Pony Up!).
Jacqueline graduated from SMU with a Bachelor of Arts in Convergence Journalism and a concentration in Political Science. During her time at SMU, she covered several big stories from following the 2016 presidential race to investigating the supply and demand of prostitution in Dallas.
She has interned at Dallas’ CBS affiliate KTVT, Detroit’s Fox affiliate WJBK and attended the 2016 Republican National Convention as a runner for CNN.
When Jacqueline’s not reporting, she loves exploring Champaign, eating poke bowls and working out!
