Jasmine Huda
Jasmine joined The Fox 2 / News 11 team in January 2016. Jasmine's experience in news began in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she attended the University of Michigan and reported for NPR member station WUOM. She subsequently landed behind-the-scenes positions with National Public Radio and Fox News Channel in Washington, DC. A St. Louis native, Jasmine was thrilled to move back to Missouri for her first on-air reporting position at KSPR-TV in Springfield, MO. She later moved to her hometown, first working at KSDK-TV, and later KMOV-TV as an evening anchor and reporter. She is the recipient of a national Edward R. Murrow award, a regional Edward R. Murrow award, and a regional Mid-America Emmy. Jasmine has been honored in several publications for her talent and contributions to St. Louis. She was named "Best Newscaster" by St. Louis Magazine, "Best Female On Air Personality" by Alive Magazine, and has also been profiled in The New York Times, The 9s Men's Magazine, Forbes.com, and "Who's Who In Diversity in St. Louis." Jasmine is active in a number of local causes, primarily the American Heart Association. She is a member of the Go Red For Women Executive Leadership Team and emcees the annual Go Red For Women Luncheon and Metro St. Louis Heart Walk. She is also involved with Guns 'N Hoses, The National Council of Jewish Women's 'Back 2 School Store', The Veiled Prophet Fashion Show, and The Crisis Nursery. In her spare time, Jasmine enjoys yoga, "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" and her new home, which she says desperately needs a puppy.

KMOV Anchor and Reporter Jasmine Huda
KMOV Anchor and Reporter Jasmine Huda Credibility, accuracy and professional integrity-the cornerstones of great journalism-define KMOV anchor and reporter Jasmine Huda. Her passion for getting to the bottom of a story, sharp investigative instincts and her ability to connect with the community are just a few of the reasons she's known as one of the top broadcast journalists in town. Case in point, she received the 2011 National Edward R. Murrow Award for the KMOV-TV documentary, "The State of Education. She also won a Regional Edward R. Murrow Award for her piece, "Miracle Field," in the Video Sports Reporting category that same year. Jasmine's other honors include a Mid-America Emmy for News Special, a Mid-America Emmy nomination for Feature News Reporting and an Outstanding Media Award by the National Alliance on Mental Illness St. Louis. And the list goes on ... "I surprise myself," she laughs. "I'll be the first to say that I never expected Jasmine Huda, Video Sports Reporting and Murrow to appear in the same sentence. But I took that story seriously, as I do all my assignments. I love to cover my hometown, and I am committed to making our city a better place to work and live." HEARTFELT Jasmine is also passionate about a cause close to her heart: raising awareness for the American Heart Association in St. Louis. She is a member of the Executive Leadership Team's "Go Red For Women" campaign and serves as the annual speaker for the organization's "Go Red For Women" Luncheon every February. "Both my parents have heart disease, so the cause hits close to home," she shares. "After a routine checkup, the doctor told my mom she unexpectedly needed two stents, so I do everything I can to raise awareness and spread the word about fighting obesity and educating women about heart disease-it's the No. 1 killer for women." During high school, Jasmine was overweight and encourages women of all ages to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle, not to just feel and look good, but for their health. After graduating high school, Jasmine earned a degree in political science from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. During her junior year at Michigan, Jasmine wanted more from her education than academic classes. Backed by the encouragement of her older brother (she is the youngest of five children) Jasmine went to NPR member station WUOM-FM in Ann Arbor inquiring about internships. There, she ran the boards, did station breaks and served as a weekend host, constantly working on her voice and delivery of the news. Just a few days after the tragedy of Sept. 11, Jasmine headed to Washington, D.C. to work as an intern at NPR Headquarters on "All Things Considered. Soon after, she was promoted to an editorial assistant for NPR's "Morning Edition. "I'll never forget how the city felt so somber and serious-it felt paralyzed to me," she says. "It was an interesting and challenging time to move to a new city and start my first job. It was a profound experience." Her great work at NPR soon landed her a job at Fox News Channel's Washington Bureau as an associate producer, where she wrote copy and booked stories for the network's daytime programs. Fox sent Jasmine to the G-8 Summit, New Hampshire Primary and the Democratic National Convention as a field producer. Washington quickly taught Jasmine how to get past the superficiality and competiveness in the news business. "Everyone in Washington is so competitive, juggles so much at once and moves so fast," she explains. While covering news there, Jasmine befriended several longtime print reporters at the Springfield News-Leader, who taught her an invaluable journalistic lesson: the importance of building and developing sources. In 2007, Jasmine left Springfield and returned to St. Louis to work as a general assignment reporter for KSDK, covering everything from snowstorms at 5 a.m. on Highway 40 overpasses to murder trials. In 2010, KMOV began pursuing her and made Jasmine an offer she couldn't refuse while she was still working at KSDK. "KMOV presented me with such a great opportunity; it was a once-in-a-lifetime deal that I had to take," she shares. "It was a tough decision, but a calculated move." Whether covering general news at KSDK or anchoring the 5 p.m. news at KMOV, Jasmine is passionate about covering stories in her hometown. "It helps so much as a reporter to be local. People in St. Louis really respect and value that you are one of them-it gives you more credibility," she says. "Covering stories in my hometown is always exciting.
