Jessica Williams is the Host and Producer of Living Local 15, our new lifestyle talk show. She joined WANE 15 in August 2022 and the show debuted in September 2022.
Jessica brings over a decade of media and marketing experience to this role. She is a Dallas, Texas native and graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Communications and minor in Advertising. After interning at KXAS and WFAA in Dallas, Jessica worked in corporate management and as the Communications Director for a non-profit. She then relocated to Los Angeles, working as an entertainment correspondent, host and content creator for many years, and co-hosted the aftershow of Big Brother and So You Think You Can Dance on Afterbuzz TV. Jessica is also an entrepreneur and speaker, and enjoys emceeing business conferences, music festivals and events.
When the pandemic hit, Jessica decided it was time to move back closer to her family, so in 2020 she returned to Texas and thoroughly enjoyed that quality time back in her hometown. In 2022, Jessica was ready for a new challenge and was thrilled at the opportunity to help create our lifestyle show from scratch, so she accepted the position at WANE 15 and relocated to Indiana. Jessica is brand new to Fort Wayne, if you see her out – say hello! She loves meeting new people and is very excited to experience our city, our seasons – and share her exploration of all things lifestyle here, on Living Local 15.
For hobbies, Jessica loves to cook, dance, mix craft cocktails, binge her favorite shows, travel, try new things and simply enjoy life! She is also a proud member of the historic Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
