Reporter

Kristy Wolski is a general assignment reporter for Action News Jacksonville, WJAX-TV and WFOX-TV.

 Kristy Wolski always knew she wanted to be a journalist, but didn‘t always think it would be in TV. She was the editor for her high school newspaper and headed off to the University of Florida with plans for a degree in print journalism.

After working for the college TV station, WUFT-TV, and the school radio station, WUFT-FM, Kristy knew broadcast journalism was the perfect fit.

She graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science in Telecommunication and landed her first job in sunny Panama City Beach, FL. Kristy’s love of sunshine took her to TV stations in Tampa/St.Petersburg, San Diego and now Jacksonville!

A little more about Kristy: She grew up on a small island in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, making her a lover of blue crabs, the Orioles and the Ravens. (Don’t worry she’s a Jags fan, too!)

Kristy’s non-news passion is traveling. Many years ago she set a goal to see at least three new cities a year. So far, so good!
