ABC News’ Jeremy Hubbard has been named co-anchor of ABC News’ early morning news programs “World News Now” and “America This Morning,” News President David Westin announced today. In addition to this role, Mr. Hubbard will contribute reports to all other ABC News’ broadcasts and platforms.

“Jeremy is an inquisitive reporter who has distinguished himself time and again, most recently at Northern Illinois University following the tragic shooting there. He’s excelled in reporting from the field, and I know he will do the same in this new assignment,” said ABC News President David Westin.

Hubbard was previously a Chicago-based correspondent for NewsOne, the affiliate news service of ABC News. NewsOne provides live and packaged news reports for more than 200 affiliates and clients in the U.S. and around the world.

Hubbard joined the network in spring 2007 and has reported on politics, the economy, severe weather and breaking news. Most recently, he covered several national stories for NewsOne, including the deadly campus shootings at Northern Illinois University, and last month’s string of tornadoes that ravaged the southern U.S.

Before joining ABC News, Hubbard was a reporter and anchor at KDVR-TV in Denver, where he covered the battle over illegal immigration. He traveled to the Mexican border, documenting the efforts of the controversial “Minuteman Project” to keep illegal immigrants from entering the U.S. Hubbard wrote, produced, and reported “Battle for the Border,” an award-winning documentary on the issue.

From 1998-2004, Hubbard worked at KMBC-TV in Kansas City, where he covered several high-profile national stories. He reported from Texas after the Space Shuttle Columbia explosion, and traveled to Terre Haute, Indiana for the execution of convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. Hubbard co-produced, co-wrote and anchored “Eye for an Eye,” an award-winning documentary about McVeigh’s execution.

Hubbard has been recognized with several honors for his reporting, including a national Edward R. Murrow award and the national Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists. He has also won three regional Edward R. Murrow awards, and regional Emmy awards for both reporting and anchoring.
