Jaclyn Allen

7NEWS Reporter

Jaclyn Allen became a member of the Channel 7 News Team in January 2007.

Since then, she has covered major news events affecting Coloradans, including the Windsor Tornado, the 2007 World Series and the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

During the 2007 wildfires that ravaged the San Diego area, she traveled to California to report from the front lines and from Qualcomm Stadium.

In 2009, she was honored by CABJ with the Scribes of Excellence Award in the TV News category, and she received the award for Investigative Reporting in 2011.

"For me, reporting is a chance to meet interesting people, tell their stories and have a front seat to history," Jaclyn says, "but it also gives me the opportunity to help those who need it most and make a difference in my community."

Before coming to Denver, Jaclyn reported at KJRH in Tulsa, Oklah., where the Oklahoma Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists nominated her for awards in outstanding feature stories and spot news reporting.

She started her journalism career as a weekend anchor and reporter at KXII in Sherman, Texas.

She worked as a research assistant and associate producer at KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City while in college.

Jaclyn graduated summa cum laude from the University of Oklahoma with degrees in journalism and music. She also studied abroad in France and speaks fluent French.

Jaclyn grew up in rural Oklahoma with three younger sisters and plenty of space, so when she is not reporting she spends her time hiking, backpacking and skiing. She also enjoys traveling all over the world, playing the piano and reading.

She would love to hear from you!
