News Director Jessica Palombo came to WJCT after years of reporting on state government for Florida Public Radio in Tallahassee. Among her accolades are a statewide Society of Professional Journalists award for Best Government Reporting and a regional Edward R. Murrow award for Best Continuing Coverage.
Jessica is no stranger to the River City or WJCT: She grew up in Jacksonville and freelanced at the station as a legislative reporter before going to Tallahassee. She also interned at NPR's "Weekends at All Things Considered" in Washington, D.C., helping produce two hours of national news and feature stories each week.
Jessica has a master's degree in broadcast and digital journalism from Syracuse University and a bachelor's in journalism from the University of Florida. Her writing has appeared in publications including Jacksonville Magazine, Skirt! Magazine, and The Gainesville Sun.
