Jackie Ward


Jackie Ward is a two-time Emmy nominated reporter who recently moved to the Bay Area from Portland, Maine. Jackie was born and raised just outside of Boston, MA where her passion for telling informative, compelling stories began to flourish. This desire to share engaging stories and keep people up to date with the news and events in their community motivated Jackie to pursue a degree in Journalism with a concentration in Broadcast from Boston University.

After obtaining her degree, Jackie started her broadcast career in Bangor, Maine at WLBZ 2 as a Multimedia Journalist. After a year and a half in Downeast Maine, she moved a few hours south to Portland, Maine where she worked at WCSH 6 as a morning anchor and multimedia journalist for four years.

One of Jackie’s biggest accomplishments during her time in Maine was producing a six-part series called “Why We Run” – a collection of profiles that focused on six individuals who were running the 2014 Boston Marathon as part of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge team. As a member of the Dana-Farber Marathon team herself, Jackie helped raise more than $16,000 for cancer research. In addition to crossing the finish line, this experience earned Jackie an Emmy nomination.

Outside of the world of TV news, Jackie loves spending time with her family, taking her dog on runs, and cheering for her New England Patriots!
