Jeremy Masukevich joined FOX 55 News in January 2020 as a Multi-Media Journalist.
Jeremy is from the Chicago-land suburb of Fox River Grove, Illinois.
He graduated from Ball State University in July 2019, with a dual-degree in Journalism News and Telecommunications.
At Ball State, Jeremy was a reporter, anchor and producer for Newslink Indiana.
He was also a reporter for The Ball State Daily News.
In his free time, Jeremy likes to watch and participate in athletic events, primarily basketball. He also loves to go snowboarding.
Jeremy’s mother is the youngest of 11 siblings, so he also spent a lot of time with my extended family in the Chicago-land area.
Jeremy supports all things Chicago when it comes to sports, so he is a fan of the Bears, Bulls and Cubs.
This will be Jeremy’s first time living away from Illinois besides the time he spent at BSU.
Jeremy is looking forward to getting to know Fort Wayne and discovering what makes the Summit City unique from other places he’s lived in the past.
He has heard Fort Wayne described as a small city with big-city amenities and he wants to get a glance at what that looks like for himself.
