Jennifer Hammond Career
Hammond took a leap of faith and relocated to Chicago six months following her graduation and started a job serving as a receptionist at an audio production company. She could meet people in the business and upgrade her audition tape. Hammond finally got a break in radio as I received an opportunity to try out at Shadow Traffic after two weeks of unpaid training in less than a year.
Later, she landed a full-time job. That gig lasted about three years and blossomed into another on-camera opportunity at CLTV in Oakbrook, Illinois doing morning traffic reports at the key wall. When the morning sports anchor declared that she wasn’t hip on reading the morning sports, she took over and finally got back in the game doing what I really loved.
In 1994, she was at a crossroads, eager to take the next step as a sports reporter working in the field – at the same time Detroit’s first all-sports talk station was getting ready to hit the airwaves and I wouldn’t be denied. Hammond drove home for a couple of days and called Program Director Lorna Gladstone at the Fan to set up a meeting – I was hired on the spot.
Jennifer Hammond FOX 2
Additionally, she worked for three years covering everything in Detroit from the Lions to the Tigers and MSU and UM football and hoops before earning a freelance job with Fox 2 to cover the Lions pregame and Red Wings Stanley Cup runs.
A shift in management at Fox 2 landed me a full-time job in the sports department as the number three in November 1997, meaning she would be out in the field covering everything from the NFL to the College World Series. In addition, it’s hard to believe it has been more than twenty years since she landed her dream job, and it keeps on getting better. Hammond has earned two Emmy awards for my work as a sports journalist. What is even more priceless is the constant feedback and interaction with views and Detroit sports fans who make this job so rewarding.
She is more committed than ever to providing interesting and informative stories to you – our Fox 2 Viewers – and hope that one day she will be covering a Lions Super Bowl! In the meantime, she remains committed to serving this incredible community and mentoring the future broadcasters of tomorrow.
