Jerry Hume joined the Spectrum News 13 team in 2012 as an anchor and reporter. From construction on Interstate 4 and SunRail’s plans for the future to rockets launching from the coast, Jerry has you covered when it comes to transportation.
In 2019, he became the newsroom’s Real Time Traffic Expert, waking up with the communities across Central Florida each morning to let them know where to avoid the slowdowns and problem spots.
An award-winning journalist, Jerry’s coverage on the Indian River Lagoon was awarded top honors from the Florida Associated Press Broadcasters in 2015. More so, Jerry’s commitment to keeping the community informed can be seen through his stories on Kennedy Space Center, where he's covered both the retirement of the space shuttle and the rise of commercial rocket companies. His favorite stories are those in which he can help people solve their road problems in his weekly Traffic Inbox segments.
When Jerry isn't analyzing data from traffic sensors, he’s either riding bikes with his wife, Daniella, teaching their dog Luna new tricks, or going to the theme parks with friends.
