Janine Stanwood joined Local 10 News in February 2004 as an assignment editor. She is now a general assignment reporter. Before moving to South Florida from her Washington home, Janine was the senior legislative correspondent for a United States senator on Capitol Hill. She was on a team that handled health care policy, met with constituents, and helped pass a veterans' bill into public law. Even though she's not a South Florida native, Janine spent most summers 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 a run on the beach with her husband, Michael. 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 Monday through Friday on Local 10 News starting at 4 p.m., as well as on Local 10 News at 11.
