According to Jennifer Graves, Vice President, ABC 7 Chicago, “Jasmine has earned an impressive reputation for being a hard-hitting, aggressive reporter. She is passionate about telling stories that offer insight into marginalized and overlooked communities. We’re delighted to have her back in her hometown to tell stories important to our community.”

Minor joined ABC 7 from WISH-TV in Indianapolis, Indiana, where she served as an investigative reporter and anchor. Throughout her career, her stories ranged from digging into local issues that impacted the community to national coverage at the White House. Some of her past work has shed light on survivors of human and sex trafficking and the racism and lingering trauma that professional Black athletes endure on and off the field. 

Minor was also honored with a prestigious fellowship with The Pew Research Center, where she acted as a juvenile justice fellow. 

Her work has been singled out with a National Association of Black Journalists National Salute to Excellence Award, nine Emmy nominations, two Emmy Awards, and many other honors.

As a former NCAA Division 1 tennis player, Minor recently co-founded the Kevin Minor Legacy Fund in memory of her father, an annual $5,000 tennis scholarship given to a young girl in the Midwest.  

She received her master’s in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University, Medill School of Journalism.
