Morning Show Co-Host

Courtney Ward

Posted:

Courtney Ward must like helping people start their day.  She joined the FOX 28 Morning Show in September 2011.  But her previous experience had her doing much the same thing in Baltimore, Charleston, Asheville and Washington, DC.  Now, she's looking forward to working here in Michiana – and having some fun, too. 

Courtney grew up in Columbia, Maryland and earned a degree in Psychology from Davidson College.  Then, the broadcasting bug bit her and she received a Masters in Broadcast Journalism from Syracuse University. 

She started her TV career working as a reporter for the ABC affiliate in Charleston, SC.  She won an Associated Press Award for a story she did on Black Friday shopping and received other recognition for a series of stories on the Tuskegee Airmen.  From South Carolina, she moved to North Carolina.  At WLOS in Asheville, she was the morning reporter and fill-in anchor.  Most recently, Courtney was a freelance reporter for TV stations in Baltimore and Washington, DC.  As you can see, she's been getting people ready for their day most of her career.

When she's not heading to bed at an absurdly early hour, she loves hanging out and catching up with her family, her boyfriend and other friends.  She also likes working out, traveling and reading autobiographies and biographies.

You can see Courtney every weekday morning on the FOX 28 Morning Show.  She, Steve DuVal and Ken Garcia would love to hear from you.  Email any ideas or comments to Courtney at cward@fox28.com or pass along ideas to her on Facebook under "Courtney Ward on FOX 28."

    Pastor Mario Sims calls for Citizens' Review Board in response to frustration with government

    Pastor Mario Sims, other spiritual leaders, and community "watch dog groups" announced plans today for a Citizens' Review Board. Sims said he believes there is a lack of public trust in South Bend's government. "Enough is enough. Understand the concept of a small handful of cronies padding their pockets, but it could cost us our city," Sims said. He says South Bend needs a Review Board that could hold city agencies accountable, something he thinks isn't happening.More >>
