Jackie Brockington, Anchor

She is a well-known name around Central Florida and knows our area’s news, and that knowledge makes Jackie a strong addition to the anchor desk at News 13.

This Brooklyn, New Yorker’s first broadcasting job was doing weather in Green Bay, Wisconsin! That was only the first stop. Jackie has worked in Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Maryland and San Diego, California. She has also worked as a news anchor for other local stations here in Orlando.

The excitement of something new each day is what fascinates Jackie about her work. She likes being in the middle of the action.

When she's not anchoring the news, Jackie likes to spend time visiting her family in New York. She has two daughters, two grandchildren (boy & girl) that she admittedly spoils to pieces. Her granddaughter is fluent in Italian and follows in her father’s footsteps and is an accomplished chef of Italian cuisine. Her grandson is all boy and gives Jackie quite a workout! The rest of her family here is made up of two cats.

Jackie enjoys cooking, reading, entertaining and traveling. A cancer survivor, Jackie says she wants to make sure that she has made a contribution with her life.
