LX New York
Favorite Episode: I’ve enjoyed live celebrity moments, like with Seal, Judith Light, Joan Rivers, Sean Hayes, Wynonna Judd, the crazy Housewives.... I love it when I can get someone to sing to me. When there are New York City events that we see as they are happening, nothing beats experiencing that with our audience as it develops before our eyes.
Before LX, I: Anchored newscasts and my own show, Jane’s New York for NBC4 (WNBC).
LX New York
Favorite Episode: Covering the many snowstorms this past winter. The one that sticks out in my mind was out on Huntington, Long Island. It was treacherous but at the same time a great day in the field.
Before LX, I Was: All news! I reported for News 12 NJ and News 12 Westchester. My first job out of college was here at the WNBC assignment desk. I’m so lucky to be back working in my hometown.
