Jen Philips found her love for journalism through her work as a volunteer on the University of Oklahoma’s nightly student-run newscast.
Her hunger to help and passion for story-telling led her to KXII. She joined the News 12 team in June 2017 as an anchor and reporter at the Paris bureau.
Jen was born in Oklahoma City and raised in the Dallas area and is beyond excited to work in an area that represents both sides of the Red River. She is at home in Texoma!
Jen graduated from the University of North Texas in May 2017 with a degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in political science.
Throughout college, Jen had the opportunity to work on many student media outlets and was thrilled to intern with NBC DFW. Her experience there gave her the tools to find the stories that need to be told and made her fall in love with journalism all over again!
You can find Jen playing guitar, singing and cooking for her friends and family on the weekends. She is always ready for adventure and loves to explore Texoma.
