Jeremy Hubbard is co-anchor of FOX31 Denver News at 5 and 9 p.m.
He’s a Colorado native, born in Glenwood Springs (most of his family still resides on the Western Slope), and he also spent part of his childhood two-miles above sea level, in the mining town of Leadville (elevation 10,152 feet).
This is Hubbard’s second stint at FOX31 Denver. He first worked here from 2004-2007 as weekend anchor.
In 2007, he left Denver for a job at ABC News, serving first as a Chicago-based correspondent, then as a New York-based anchor and correspondent. 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, his reporting has taken him around the world. In December 2012, he traveled to Germany and Afghanistan to profile a group of U.S. Air Force Reserve medics from Colorado who’d been deployed to the war zone to treat wounded soldiers. His special report, “Assignment: Afghanistan,” was honored by the Colorado Broadcasters Association as “Best News Magazine.”
In 2013, he traveled to Hawaii with a group of Colorado World War II survivors to mark the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. His special report, “Day of Infamy: A Return to Pearl Harbor” was honored as “Best Documentary” by the Colorado Broadcasters Association.
In 2014, he traveled to England and France to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day with a group of Colorado men who survived the invasion that helped bring about the end of World War II.
He also spent a week anchoring FOX31 Denver’s coverage from New York’s Times Square leading up to the Denver Broncos appearance in Super Bowl XLVIII.
He also anchored and reported extensively from the wildfires and historic floods that ravaged Colorado in 2013, leading to both an Emmy Award for “Best Anchor,” and a Colorado Broadcasters Association award for “Best Anchor.”
His career began at KWCH in Wichita, KS, where he attended college at Wichita State University. He also worked as a reporter and anchor at KMBC-TV in Kansas City.
He has been recognized with several honors for his reporting, including 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 three regional Edward R. Murrow Awards, and four regional Emmy awards for both reporting and anchoring.
Hubbard is married with two kids and a dog, and lives in Denver, but loves to spend his free time in the mountains.
