This South Carolina native has officially made her way back to the southeast after a two-year stint as a reporter in South Dakota. Mary Helen Jones joined the Spectrum News Greensboro team in June 2018 and is enjoying every moment of being just a few hours away from her hometown once again.
Being a part of a 24-hours newsroom, Mary Helen loves that each day presents new challenges, new people, and an array of new topics and stories to discuss. Throughout the various stories Mary Helen has covered, one that sticks out to her is a recent interview with a domestic abuse survivor. Listening to the woman's story and being able to share it reminded Mary Helen of the level of trust place in reporters each day. She also has learned the responsibility as a reporter to our society is much bigger than meets the eye.
When she isn’t working on her next story at the news desk, you can find her training for her next half marathon at one of the many greenway paths throughout Greensboro. Aside from that, it’s a safe bet that Mary Helen can usually be found with a book in her hand or rooting for her alma mater football team - go Dawgs!
