Jenny Milkowski, News 8 Traffic Anchor

“I've always wanted to live and work in California so when this opportunity arose, my heart lifted.

San Diego feels like home. This job and our viewers mean the world to me. Thank you, San Diego for the warm welcome! Quite literally."

Navigating your early morning, weekday commute is easier with NEWS 8 traffic anchor and social media reporter Jenny Milkowski mapping the routes.

Jenny joins News 8’s morning team most recently from FOX 32, Chicago, IL, where she handled traffic reporting on GOOD DAY CHICAGO.  Jenny also hit afternoon radio airwaves, on JENNY MILK AND JAY at WSHE-FM Chicago. 

An Emmy award winning writer, Jenny took the Windy City by storm on social media as digital reporter and blogger, covering everything from food and lifestyle to breaking news and human interest features. She created and produced such digital series as ‘Milk Muscle,’ ‘Polish School with Jenny,’ on and was ranked Chicago’s #1 digital talent by Share Rocket.

Born and raised in Chicago, Jenny is a proud first-generation Polish American, learning Polish as her first language. She earned her bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Illinois and honed her improvisational and acting skills at The Second City Chicago and Acting Studio Chicago.

An animal lover, Jenny grew up with dogs but now is mom to two cats and an advocate of #AdoptDontShop, encouraging pet adoptions through local shelters.
