Brittany Jones, Flagler County Reporter
Brittany Jones is a proud Florida native journalist who has spent her entire career in her home state. She joined News 13 as our Flagler County reporter in November 2015.
Brittany started her career at The Florida Channel in Tallahassee as a political reporter. She later was an anchor and reporter for Tallahassee's WTXL ABC 27 and the Bounce TV news. Before News 13, Brittany worked as a reporter in her hometown of Jacksonville for WFOX/WJAX, a part of an Emmy-nominated news team. She assisted in growing the station's viewership and increasing ratings. She also interned at WJXX/WTLV in Jacksonville and covered sports and news during college.
Brittany has covered everything from education to crime, to severe weather and stories that highlight the black and brown communities. Her most memorable work includes covering Robert Champion and the Florida A&M band, the Michael Dunn trial, investigations into Global Ministries Foundations and El Faro. Brittany loves to cover stories to hold people accountable for viewers and to dig to uncover information.
Brittany graduated cum laude from the University of Florida (Go Gators!). She loves sports — especially football — traveling, church, shopping and spending a lot of time with family and friends. She also enjoys mentoring young girls to push them to live out their full potential. She is a proud member of the of the National Association of Black Journalists.
Brittany said if she ever moved away from her hometown, it would be to work in Central Florida, and she's happy to now cover the area. Brittany's goal is to own Flagler County and would love you to pass along any stories you'd like her to cover.
