Hi! I'm Haley Jordan.
Thank you for visiting my website!
I am a current sports reporter with Sports Illustrated Indiana/FanNation where I wear a lot of hats! I am the sideline reporter, video director, host and staff writer for Indiana, Purdue, Fastbreak NBA and the Fastball MLB websites. I attend many games and press conferences where I find compelling storylines to write about or use as a podcast topic. Sideline hits are common to update our viewers and readers about final game scores and important story nuggets. I edit all of the footage I gather from press conferences and my stand-ups into Adobe Premiere and publish the final product complete with a written story.
I have recently started freelance sideline reporting with Notre Dame sports on ACC Network Extra. I also serve as a volleyball analyst for the University of Evansville on ESPN3. My end goal is to become an analyst, host or sideline reporter on network TV. I currently have a broadcast coach who reviews all of my live broadcast work to ensure each game is better than the next.
I am a former sports reporter and producer at CBS affiliate WIFR in Rockford, IL. Among other offers, I chose this job to get me close to Chicago sports. I covered the Bears, Packers, Cubs, White Sox and the Brewers during my time there.
I was responsible for producing five or more sports shows a week. Most times, I was the one shooting my own highlights for high school (I've done almost every sport you can think of), club baseball and minor league sports. Then, I put it all together and was ready to anchor all of my shows by 6 and 10 p.m. This market has a surplus of sports, and I was blessed to be the only female sports reporter in town to make some of those hidden stories come to life.
I graduated from Indiana University in December 2020 with a degree in Sports Broadcast Journalism and Spanish. I finished with a 3.9 GPA and SO MUCH Hoosier pride!
I had a few part time jobs to keep me occupied and close to stations before I started job hunting in 2021. I served as a part-time FOX59 Hoosier Lottery host, a part-time sports photographer for WISH-TV and an IU Newsroom print reporter intern (where I interned for almost two years including part of college).
I enjoy anywhere with bodies of water (especially Indiana lakes), sweets (key lime pie & ice cream) and spending my off nights with family and tabby cat, Prince Henry.
