Jessica Hayes joined WISH-TV as a multi-platform journalist in January 2011. She came to WISH from CBS affiliate WTHI-TV in Terre Haute, Ind., where she was a general assignment reporter and weather forecaster.
Before moving to Indiana, Jessica worked as an assignment editor at CBS affiliate WUSA in Washington, DC. Prior to that, she spent several years working as a public relations executive in New York City. While there, Jessica witnessed the September 11 terrorist attacks on lower Manhattan and their aftermath. Because of that, she ultimately decided news would be her career path.
Outside of work, Jessica is active in breast cancer awareness and prevention. She's spent much time working with Susan G. Komen for the Cure. In her spare time, she likes to spend time with family, work out and explore Indianapolis. Jessica also won't pass up the opportunity to catch a baseball game, particularly the St. Louis Cardinals.
Jessica holds a Bachelor's Degree in Business and Communications from Illinois State University and a Master's Degree in Political and International Journalism from Georgetown University.
She's originally from Effingham, Ill.
