Janine Stanwood joined Local 10 in February 2004 as an assignment editor. She is now a general assignment reporter.
Before moving to South Florida from her Washington, D.C., home, Janine was the senior legislative correspondent for a United States senator on Capitol Hill. Handling health care policy, fending off lobbyists and helping pass a veterans' bill into public law were just a few of her feats in Washington.
Even though she's not a South Florida native, Janine spent every spring and summer for nearly 20 years with her family in Fort Lauderdale. She's honored to be on the inside of the news operation she regularly watched -- whether she's reporting on victims of crime, covering politics in South Florida or sorting through the breaking news of the night.
When she's not reporting, you can find Janine making art with metal and oil on canvas. She is also a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen. She enjoys a good workout at the gym and on the beach and has read James Joyce's "Ulysses" about four times. She believes one can never have too many odysseys in life.
Janine is a graduate of the University of Virginia with honors with a distinguished degree in English and a degree in fine art.
She can be seen every Monday through Friday at 11 p.m. on The Local News.
