Jack Bassett joined the 13abc team in July 2020 after graduating from Indiana University with a Bachelor of Arts in Cinema Production and Visual Communication.
Jack is a Hoosier from Auburn, Indiana just north of Fort Wayne, just one and a half hours away from Toledo!
During his time at Indiana University, he spent countless hours working with student led media organizations. Jack hosted his own weekly segment: “Jack on the Street” spotlighting local businesses, events, and groups throughout Bloomington, Indiana. AT IU, Jack was active with the student news programs IU NewsNet and IU Student Television, where he followed campus shootings, Greek life, and the latest issues effecting students. Jack said he enjoyed getting to spotlighting unique people throughout the community most during his time student reporting and hopes to continue to do so here in Toledo.
Jack also has a passion for audio storytelling. He currently produces a weekly podcast focusing on environmental rights and issues for the state of Indiana. In his free time Jack creates podcasts spotlighting life and love as well.
When not working Jack has a love for traveling and attending concerts. Jack fills his summers going to music festivals and exploring the world with his friends. When he has time you can find Jack working out at a local YMCA or getting lost in the moment at a winery or downtowns farmers market.
As a new resident to Toledo, Jack would appreciate any possible story ideas, bar and restaurant recommendations, and positive vibes sent his way.
