Digital Journalist

Jenyne Donaldson began her career at FOX46 in September of 2016, just one day before a deadly police shooting sparked protests gripping the city and the nation’s attention.

Jenyne has a passion for people and believes in giving a voice to the community. To her “Getting Results” is a true labor of love, that she has been able to deliver most notably with Army Veteran Edmund Baines to whom she helped get a life-saving kidney transplant.

Born in Philadelphia and raised in a nearby suburb, Jenyne started her news career as a Production Assistant and grew into the role of an Assignment Editor at CBS 3, Philly’s first tv station. There she helped the newsroom win an Emmy Award for News Excellence and worked on major stories including Hurricanes Irene and Sandy, the Penn State Sex Assault, and sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

Before joining FOX 46, Jenyne worked at WTVM in Columbus, Ga. As the only morning reporter in the market she set the tone and pace for the day covering major breaking news, for her station as well as stations across the south, many making national headlines. Her most memorable story was covering President Obama’s Speech at the 50th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday in Selma, Al. There Jenyne immersed herself in the community by co-creating a mentorship program for high schoolers, volunteering with local organizations and being a champion for veterans.

Jenyne started her on-air career in Wichita Falls where she extensively covered the major drought threatening thousands of North Central Texans. While she doesn’t miss the heat she does miss the barbecue.
