Casey Jones joined the 24 Hour News 8 Sports Department in August 2012 after a time as a multi-media journalist in South Bend.
A Grand Rapids native, Jones went to West Catholic High School, then to Grand Valley State University where he earned a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism.
For two years, he was a part-time member of the WOOD TV8 Sports Department. He then accepted the job at the FOX station in South Bend, working extensively to cover Notre Dame sports, including Fighting Irish football head coach Brian Kelly and the team.
"When you grow up watching a station and get into the business because of the people who represent that station, it's really surreal to think that you're now a part of that pedigree,” said Jones. “I’ve always imagined myself at WOOD TV and it's a dream come true to be back home."
He covers West Michigan sports five days a week, and is the weekend sports anchor.
