About NewsAnchorMom

Hello! My name is Jen Christensen. I'm a news anchor at WHOI-TV, Peoria, Illinois, an ABC affiliate. I am also the mom of two little boys.

I created this blog full of "news" for moms to make life easier for you because I know how hectic life can get when you have little ones.

After ten years in the media business, I have learned there are times when reporting the basic news doesn't give moms what they really want to know. This website will give you that insight from the perspective of a T.V. news anchor and mom. My career is centered around knowing what’s going on in the world, especially when it comes to kids. is an easy way to get important information for your family, share your stories, and hear from other moms just like you.

E-mail me at with any suggestions. Thanks!
