As a cub reporter, Jana Collier was a writer for the Brazosport Facts in Clute, Texas. Her beat consisted of six small villages and towns where she covered slice-of-life features starring the characters who lived in the backwoods and bayous of this rural community.
27 years later, as Vice President of Content for Cox Media Group Ohio, she leads news teams from the top media brands in the region, including WHIO AM/FM, Dayton Daily News, Dayton B2B Magazine and the #1 CBS Affiliate in the country, WHIO-TV. “I am so proud of the work our staff does every day, holding government accountable, protecting people from severe weather, watching out for the Miami Valley and connecting to the soul of this community,” says Collier.
In her spare time, Jana connects with her crafty soul in her shop on Etsy. She loves home decorating, sewing, fashion, upcycling, cooking and gardening. Nearly every summer Saturday you can find Jana rummaging through the yard, at church, or at the estate sales of southern Montgomery County.
