Whether it's out in the field or behind the desk in the studio, Courtney Cole has had the pleasure of bringing you important headlines, news you can use and memorable stories for the past three years.
Cole anchors Action News Jax This Morning: Weekend every Saturday and Sunday, and looks forward to helping you get your day started! CBS47/FOX30 Action News Jax welcomed her to the family in March 2018. Ever since then, she's hit the ground running!
She's had the opportunity to cover a myriad of stories. Some of the more memorable ones include: an exclusive, one-on-one interview with Vice President Kamala Harris, covering former Vice President Mike Pence's visit to Jacksonville to discuss the USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement), the investigation into efforts to privatize JEA, November 2020 Election Night coverage in Tallahassee, and a COVID-19 fact-vs-fiction series.
Prior to coming to work in Jacksonville, she worked as an Anchor/Producer and Reporter at WSAV News 3 in Savannah, but she got her start in West Palm Beach, Florida at WPTV.
Cole has called the South home for 8 years now, but she's a native Chicagoan and proud Hampton University alumna (#GoPirates!) When she’s not reporting, you can usually find her in the kitchen trying a new recipe, getting lost in the newspaper or a book, or planning a visit with family and friends.
