TV news types find new career Television news people seem to come and go rapidly here in Medford. I'm wondering what happened to a fellow named Thom Jensen, who worked for Channel 12. I believe he was married to another personality at his station.

The Googlemeisters at the SYA World Headquarters punched this one up fairly quickly.
Jensen and his bride of four years, Melanie Wingo, are now employed by KGTV Channel 10 in San Diego.
Jensen worked six years at KDRV in Medford before joining the San Diego station as an investigative reporter in February 2004. Wingo recently joined KGTV's staff as a general assignment reporter. She also worked for KDRV for six years.
— Jensen gained two honors in the 2003 Oregon Associated Press Broadcasters Association Awards announced last spring. His Storm Drain Spill story took first in the Best Hard News category and he produced After the Fire, a second-place entry in the Best Special or Documentary category. Wingo was a three-time local TV personality winner of the Mail Tribune Readers Choice awards before departing last year.
As a side note, Jensen's most notable off-the-air accomplishment came in September 1999 when he scored a hole-in-one on the 145-yard No. 2 hole at Cedar Links Golf Club.
