Jo Ingles (Ohio Public Radio)

Jo Ingles is an award-winning journalist who began her career in Louisville, Kentucky in the mid 80’s. Through the years, she’s worked in both radio and television as a reporter and production assistant. She’s assisted in the production of a presidential debate for ABC Television news, reported for a major commercial radio station in Louisville, and then came back to her native Ohio to begin working at the WOSU Stations in Columbus Ohio in 1989 to begin a long resume of work in public radio.

After working for more than a decade as a general assignment reporter at WOSU-AM, Jo was hired by the Ohio Public Radio/TV News Bureau where she’s worked for the past 11 years. She’s covered everything from tax hikes to Supreme Court proceedings to educational policies. Jo lives in southern Delaware county with her husband Roger and two children.

The state’s highest court says ProgressOhio, the liberal policy group that sued over JobsOhio, needs to take the case to a lower court before it can be heard in the Ohio Supreme Court.  ProgressOhio’s Brian Rothenberg says his group is considering that option.  Rothenberg says one of the reasons he started his case at the Ohio Supreme Court is that the recently enacted JobsOhio law mandated that action.  The court’s ruling does not address the constitutionality of JobsOhio.
