Jessica Dupnack is a reporter born and raised in Detroit now back home, reporting on week nights and weekends for FOX 2.This is home! Growing up in metro Detroit, it was always a dream to one day work for the news station that I grew up watching. I have been fortunate enough to spend my entire journalistic career in our beautiful state.Most recently, I worked as the crime reporter in Flint at the ABC affiliate, WJRT. I started during the height of the city’s water crisis. For three years, from my first day to my last I covered water related stories. It was an eye opening experience to say the least. I was able to gain the trust of the community during a dire time for the city. The city and its fine people will always hold a special place in my heart.I earned several awards during my time in Flint for my water crisis coverage including an Emmy and was a main contributor for two Edward R. Murrow regional awards. To that I say, “thank you for letting me tell your stories."My first news job out of school at Michigan State University was as a 'one man band' reporter in northern Michigan at the FOX/CBS affiliate in Cadillac. That’s where I learned that this news thing is not an easy gig but well worth it.After paying my dues, I was moved to the anchor desk to do a four and a half hour morning show called ‘Michigan This Morning.’I am truly humbled to be a part of the FOX 2 family and honored to tell YOUR stories.
