This is Hubbard’s second stint at FOX31 Denver. He first worked here from 2004-2007 as weekend anchor.

He was co-anchor of ABC’s national early-morning newscasts, “World News Now” and “America This Morning,” and reported for “Good Morning America,” “World News with Diane Sawyer” and “Nightline,” traveling across the country and overseas to cover breaking news, severe weather, the economy and politics for the network.
Since returning to FOX31 Denver, he’s reported from all over the world. He’s traveled to Afghanistan to profile Colorado Air Force reservists, returned to the battlefield with Vietnam veterans, and walked with World War II veterans on the beaches of Normandy, the bayfront at Pearl Harbor, and the front lines of Saipan and Tinian in the Northern Mariana Islands of Micronesia. He’s also journeyed to the concentration camps of Poland to tell the stories of Holocaust survivors who now live in Colorado.

He’s also been honored with a national Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio and Television News Directors Association, and the national Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists. He has also won five regional Edward R. Murrow Awards.

He serves on the Denver Metro Advisory Board of the Salvation Army, and the advisory board of Shimmering Wings, a non-profit that sends grieving children to summer camp to help cope with the loss of a parent, sibling or other close family member. He’s also done volunteer work with Denver Rescue Mission, Attention Homes, The Greatest Generations Foundation, Junior Achievement and others.
His career began at KWCH in Wichita, KS, where he attended college at Wichita State University. In 2012, he and his wife started the Jeremy Hubbard and Taunia Hottman Scholarship in Communication at WSU, to help aspiring journalists pay for their education.
