Jennifer Fuller

Associate Director for News & Public Affairs, Morning Edition Host

WSIU's award winning reporter bringing you the morning news, local political talk and market forecasts.

Jennifer Fuller joined the WSIU family at a very young age- as both a viewer and a listener! Growing up in Carterville, Jennifer enjoyed WSIU's PBS programming as a child and young adult, and then became even more involved when she attended SIUC and worked for both the radio and TV stations as a student.

Jennifer's love for news and public affairs led her to Springfield after college, where she earned her Master's Degree in Public Affairs Reporting from the University of Illinois-Springfield, and interned with the Illinois Radio Network. After that, she was an award-winning anchor and reporter for WTAX-AM in Springfield, covering education, medicine and political issues for the capitol city.

Following her time in Springfield, Jennifer returned home to southern Illinois, where she rejoined WSIU as a News Producer and Morning Anchor. She expanded and continued the Morning Conversation program, interviewing leaders in politics, education, medicine, arts and many other areas from all over the region and all over the world.

Jennifer is heavily involved in many organizations, including the Illinois News Broadcasters Association, where she currently serves as Past President. She also volunteers her time at her church and in other community groups and events.
