Jessica Smith joined the WISH-TV team in March of 2014, as a multi-platform journalist. Indianapolis is a special city to Jessica. It’s where she was born and raised.
Before coming back to Indy, Jessica worked in New York City at FOX Business Network and Bloomberg TV. In New York, she worked on the election team, covering the 2012 Presidential campaigns, Democratic and Republican National conventions and the election results. Then she moved to covering the fast-paced world of Wall Street during the last hour of trading.
Prior to the Big Apple, Jessica spent four years reporting in Columbia, Missouri at KOMU-TV. She extensively covered the Joplin tornado devastation, the extreme flooding of 2011 and Ryan Ferguson’s quest to get his murder conviction overturned.
Jessica is a proud Mizzou Tiger and loves to find fellow University of Missouri grads in Indianapolis. In her down time, you’ll find her cheering on the Pacers, running the canal or reading a good book.
Now that Jessica is back at home, she wants to tell stories that matter to you. Learning new things and meeting new people are her favorite parts of this job. Jessica hopes you’ll help her do both. Feel free to send tips or just say hello in the form below. Follow her on Twitter @JessicaASmith8.
