I love connecting with you on social media, and you can find me lots of places:
Jessica McMaster can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When did you start working here?
May 4, 2015.
Where else have you worked?
Prior to coming to KSHB 41, I was weekend anchor/reporter at WXMI in Grand Rapids, Mich. I started my career there as a web producer and even produced the 10 p.m. weekend newscast.
I also spent seven years working as a nursing assistant in hospitals and nursing homes across the state of Michigan.
Where did you go to college?
I spent three years at Central Michigan University and finished up the last year of my undergrad at Grand Valley State University.
What are you most proud of when it comes to your work?
I'm most proud of my work when it leads to positive changes within the community. While I do enjoy chasing down the bad guys, making a difference is what it's all about.
What are you most proud of in your own life?
Being able to have the courage and determination to go after whatever I set my mind to. I believe the only person who can hold us back is ourselves. If you want it, go get it!
What do you love about living in the KC area?
So far, I can’t get enough of the Plaza!!! Also, the fact that the area is so pet friendly is a huge bonus. My French Mastiff, Winnie, is loving it here.
What are your favorite local hangouts/places, sports & cultural institutions?
I'm still figuring that out. Feel free to send me some suggestions! If it involves food, I'll like it!
Other than KSHB.com and KSHB 41, you get your news from….
National feeds--CNN, BBC, Huff Post. Can you even avoid getting news? Most of it comes right to my phone and turns up on my Facebook feed.
Apps you can't live without:
My map and weather are the two apps I can absolutely not live without. Everything else is merely a convenience.
