Jack moved to Dallas after three years at WESH-TV, the NBC affiliate in Orlando. While there, he worked to become the station’s investigative reporter. Among the┬ástories he broke was a series on Orlando firefighters’ claims that the city ignored their serious medical problems to save money. Jack won an Associated Press award and the International Association of Firefighters’ award for those reports.

Before Orlando, Jack won other awards for his reporting at the Orange County Newschannel in Orange County, California, and WINK-TV, the CBS affiliate in Fort Myers, Florida. He began in television news in 1990 as a reporter and anchor for WUTR-TV, the ABC affiliate in Utica, New York.

Jack studied in Spain for a semester as part of a study abroad program. During his senior year, Jack became a radio news anchor and reporter for WHEN-AM in Syracuse.
