WICS Reporter Jordan Elder Switching Sinclair Stations, Moving to San Antonio

By Kevin Eck 

Jordan Elder is switching Sinclair owned stations. She’s leaving WICS in Springfield, Ill. to join San Antonio NBC and Fox affiliates WOAI and KABB.

On Instagram, Elder wrote that she’d “close out” her time at WICS next week. She joined WICS as an MMJ in June 2020.

“Land of Lincoln to the Lone Star State. I’ve accepted a new job reporting for News 4 San Antonio/FOX San Antonio, where I’ll also get to learn from two top-notch investigative teams,” she said. “I’m sad to leave, but I’m so excited to keep learning and growing in Texas. Yeehaw!”


Houston media blogger Mike McGuff said Elder will be joining her fiancee, Matt Roy, another WICS reporter who recently left the station for WOAI-KABB.

“Now they will be reunited thanks to the romantic Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc,” wrote McGuff. “I mean, can you think of anything more lovable than one of the largest, corporate TV news owners? Talk about a warm and fuzzy company.”
