Storme Jones joined News 9 in May 2019. A native of Yukon, Okahoma, Storme graduated from the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord College with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and minors in political science and international studies.
He has traveled across the country covering Oklahomans, from tracking the state’s congressional delegation in Washington D.C., to covering the Oklahoma standard in action in Florida days after Hurricane Michael ravaged the gulf coast.
His coverage of people with intellectual disabilities and environmental issues earned state and national recognition during his time at KGOU Radio, with awards from the Oklahoma Society of Professional Journalists, The Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters and the Oklahoma/Arkansas Associated Press.
In 2018, Storme traveled across the country investigating hate groups and their victims. His reporting took him from rural Nebraska to downtown Detroit and 13 states in between. The Carnegie-Knight News21 project earned a Robert F. Kennedy Award for Human Rights and a Student Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Digital Reporting.
Storme enjoys spending time at his family farm in Northeast Oklahoma and attending OU football games with his three brothers. He is also an Aussiedoodle dad to Henry.
Storme believes in the strength and resilience of Oklahomans and is proud to tell their stories daily.
