One of Fox Sports’ main faces, Sarah Jones has risen through the reporting ranks at an amazing pace. Jones boasts over ten years’ experience in the media working on such events as the Australian Open, Olympic Games and the AFL before a move behind the news desk with Fox Sports News.
Beginning her career with Channel Seven while still in high school, Jones’ obvious drive and charisma were identified at an early age. At Seven, Jones worked on the Sydney Olympics coverage before moving into a part-time role with Sportsworld while completing her degree at RMIT. Jones then joined Fox Sports newly formed Fox Footy Channel, where she spent five years in a range of roles, including reporting and presenting on the highly successful White Line Fever and Saturday Central programs.
At the end of 2006, Jones joined Fox Sports News inaugural Melbourne Bureau, where she has covered a variety of major events including the AFL Grand Final and The Ashes. With the return of Fox Footy in 2012, Jones again took on a role with the channel, reporting on a number of big AFL stories as part of the After The Bounce team, as well as continuing to present on the coverage of a number of key events on the calendar such as the AFLPA MVP and All-Australian awards. Sarah has also been a major part of the Fox Sports’ cricket broadcasts, featuring on the Ryobi Cup and KFC T20 Big Bash as a boundary rider. Jones has covered the Vancouver Winter Olympics, Delhi Commonwealth Games and was a studio host on Foxtel’s London Olympics coverage. Already sporting a wealth of experience, Jones’ star looks set to grow even brighter in the near future.
