Jenn Pritchard

Born and raised in Ottawa ( the best city in the world ) - I became fascinated with radio while listening to Ken 'The General' Grant every morning.

Once I graduated from high school I spend one long year at Carleton University before I realized it wasn't for me - instead enrolling in the Radio Broadcasting program at Algonquin College.

I graduated in 2003 - but already had my first radio gig. I started as a board operator at stations then owned by CHUM radio.

After six years behind the board, producing talk shows and writing traffic reports, I left Ottawa for Calgary.

My love of Ottawa couldn't keep me away for long and I returned less than a year later, taking a job in the Ottawa Valley which then led me to Brighton, Ontario.

I took a job as a news director in the small town near Trenton, helping to launch a brand new station.

In 2012, I came back to Ottawa and took a job as a news anchor with 1310 NEWS, made a quick hop across the street, only to return in 2018.

As a reporter with 1310 NEWS I enjoy covering city politics and would spend every day at city hall if I could.

I love hearing stories that effect our community so feel free to email me any story ideas - jenn.pritchard@ottawaradio.rogers.com

Other than having a passion for local news I enjoy crafting, colouring my hair all the colours of the rainbow and I love spending time with my dog Roxy Roller.
