Jennaphr Frederick – 2017 Gala Emcee

Jennaphr Frederick joined the “Good Day Philadelphia” team in September, 2003.  Prior to becoming a morning person, Jennaphr was a general assignment reporter for the FOX 29 “News at Ten.”

Before joining the FOX family in October 1999, she worked for two years as an investigative reporter for WKBW-TV, the ABC affiliate in Buffalo, NY.  A diverse background has helped Jennaphr to develop a proficiency in newsgathering.  Before working at WKBW-TV, she was part of the morning team for WTVR-TV in Richmond, VA, a CBS affiliate.  She speaks Spanish fluently and takes pride in having worked as an anchor and investigative reporter for KGNS-TV in Laredo, TX, a NBC affiliate and bilingual station.  It was there that she started her career and frequently reported stories in Spanish.

Jennaphr is a Florida native and a graduate of the State University of New York, Buffalo with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.  She lives in Montgomery County, PA, with her husband, Steve, and their two children. During her free time she enjoys snowboarding, golfing, and traveling.
