Jane grew up in Rowlett and has been a Dallas-Fort Worth sports junkie for as long as she can remember. Prior to becoming sports anchor/reporter for CBS 11 and TXA 21, Jane co-hosted a sportstalk program, “Elf and Slater” with Mark Elfenbein on CBS RADIO’s 105.3 The FAN. During her time at The FAN, she traveled to the Super Bowl, Cowboys training camp, on Rangers road trips and to the Mayweather/Guerrero bout in Vegas.
This is Jane’s second stint with CBS 11 and TXA 21, as she previously served as a freelance reporter and anchor for the stations. She’s also worked as a traffic anchor at WFAA. Jane received dual degrees in broadcast Journalism and government from the University of Texas in Austin. After college, she was both a producer/reporter at KYTX in Tyler, Texas and a news reporter at KMGH in Denver. While she enjoys covering news, sports is her true passion, and she’s thrilled to be doing what she loves right here in North Texas.
For Jane, her job isn’t about punching the clock and collecting a paycheck, it’s the daily realization of a dream for a girl who never gave up. And she recognizes that she wouldn’t be doing it if not for the support of those who encouraged her to realize her professional ambitions. It’s for that reason that she feels compelled to mentor young aspiring journalists.

Texas Rangers opening day starter Matt Harrison is eligible to come off the disabled list next week, but GM Jon Daniels doesn’t expect the left-hander back anytime soon.
Texas Rangers’ rookie right-hander Nick Tepesch joined Elf & Slater on Wednesday to discuss his major league debut.
“We haven’t done real well at home, but we’ve been a pretty good road team…we’re in the middle of the pack and just trying to find a spot for the playoffs” said Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow during his weekly show on 105.3 The Fan.
He used to wear TCU purple and call Fort Worth home, now he’s in the great white north and dons the orange and black stripes for the Cincinnati Bengals.
“There is a lot of people trying to come in and obviously they didn’t know it was him, but once they figured out it was him they let him right in.
“I didn’t buy the team to be a traditional owner, I bought it as a change of vocation,” said Jones when asked about a USA Today article where he refers to himself as a ‘coach’.
Remember all of the old Cowboys songs of the past? The Fan thinks you can do better!
The Cowboys owner/general manager not only gave an update on the how things are looking at camp, now in it’s second week – he also continued the ‘love-fest’ with co-host Jane Slater.
It’s true! You never really know what Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones is going to say…and today was no exception.
Live all this week from Cowboys Training Camp in Oxnard, California – The Fan’s Elf & Slater show caught up with Safety Barry Church.
With a .282 average (as of July 30th) fans at the ballpark have been vocal, and not in a good way, when the Rangers slugger approaches the plate.
“I don’t think they (the NFL) were doing anything intentionally, but they didn’t understand the impact of them” said Staubach on 105.3 The Fan.
