Jackie Ibanez’s Biography and Age
Jackie was born in the city of Logan in the state of Utah on November 7, 1985. She spent much of her childhood in Logan. Ibanez grew up with very loving and supportive parents. She began to nurse the desire to be a journalist at a young age. When she told her parents of her dream, they gave her all the support and encouragement she needed to realize it.
The journalist deserves a medal for her skill in keeping private matters private. Nothing is known about her parents, their names, her siblings (if any) or their names.
Jackie graduated from Sky View High School in 2003. She then went to Quinnipiac University, a private university in the state of Connecticut.

Jackie Ibanez’s Early Career
After graduation, Jackie focused on her professional career. She kickstarted it with a job as a producer at WWLP-TV in 2007. For this, she had to move out to Massachusetts, where the NBC-affiliated television station was located. It didn’t take long for her talent and contribution to be recognized and rewarded. Just four months into her working with the station, she was promoted to reporter and anchor. It seemed her career could only go up from there, but first, there was an unexpected twist in her narrative. For some reason, she grew disenchanted with her love for journalism. In 2010, she left WWLP-TV.
She then joined a New York City public relations firm, Coltrin & Associates, in the capacity of managing director. This was in October 2012. Here, she managed several tech accounts for the company and also collaborated with the senior management team in developing client strategy. She also occasionally handled on and off camera media training for the firm’s clients.
In November 2011, she left the firm in a bid to restart her journalism career and in Dec the same year, she signed on to News 12 Connecticut. Ibanez started as freelance anchor/reporter for the network and then became a weekend morning anchor in November 2012. In December 2014, she parted ways with the network.
After leaving News 12 Connecticut, she joined the prestigious FOX News Channel as a correspondent. She became the channel’s anchor for the “overnight breaking news” segment.
