Jones hosted AFL Tonight on Fox Sports News in 2016 and later worked as a boundary rider for Fox Footy’s AFL coverage. During that same year, in June, she temporarily replaced Eddie McGuire as the studio host of Fox Thursday Night coverage after McGuire made sexist comments on the radio. As a result, Jones assumed the hosting duties on Thursdays for the remainder of the season.

In 2018, her responsibilities grew as she co-hosted “On The Mark” alongside Kelli Underwood and Neroli Meadows, both female broadcasters. As a result, Jones took on additional duties, such as hosting Fox Footy’s match-day coverage, primarily on Thursdays and Saturdays, and during the AFLW season. Furthermore, she hosted Fox Footy’s Grand Final Day preview during her time as the AFLW host. Jones also acted as the master of various award ceremonies, such as the All-Australian Awards, the AFLPA MVP, and the Australian Football Hall of Fame.

Jones became a host and boundary reporter for Fox Cricket in 2018, during its BBL coverage, following the network’s reacquisition of cricket rights in Australia.
