Jessica Borg| Financial News Anchor
Jess became enthralled by the power of storytelling at a young age. After witnessing a small plane crash in her neighborhood as a child, she was interviewed by a local news reporter and saw firsthand how information could be gathered quickly, effectively and with sensitivity to the subject matter. It was clear from that point on that news reporting would be a life-long passion she had to pursue.
Fast-forward some years to her first job as a “one-man-band” on the streets of New York City — producing, researching, writing, recording, and editing all her own video reports.
During her career as a television news anchor and reporter with ABC News and CBS News, she covered the gamut of journalism beats — politics, sports, crime, entertainment, consumer affairs and finance, reporting extensively on the 2008 global economic crisis.
She has won an Associated Press Broadcasters Award, as well as an RTDNA Regional Edward R. Murrow Award for Breaking News Coverage.
Jess graduated New York University with top academic honors and holds a Master of Journalism degree from Iona University, where she earned the Edward J. Lovas Journalism Award.
