Gabrielle Jackson always knew she would be on television from a young age. She would spend afternoons and evenings as a kid watching the Oprah Show and evening news. By the age of seven, she knew she was going to be on television. She attended St. Marks High School in Wilmington, Delaware where she followed her passion by doing the morning announcements every morning where she got to host and interview students and staff at her school. From there, she went to school in Richmond where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in writing from Virginia Commonwealth University. She was also able to graduate with a master’s degree in Communication Studies.
She was able to maintain her 4.0 G.P.A in her masters program while working full time. Gabrielle even was able to field produce two Super Bowls and the 2020 Iowa Caucus. Now, Jackson is a freelance correspondent and producer at NBC News Channel, an affiliate news feed service for NBC Universal that provides video, scripts, and live broadcasting feeds to NBC affiliated news stations. Jackson’s long term goals are to continue working in television on air, own her own media company, help others who want to get their foot in the door in the television industry, get her doctorate, and eventually become a professional. In her free time, Gabrielle enjoys watching and playing basketball, spending time with her family and friends, playing softball, modeling and participating in runway shows, and dancing. The New Jersey native said, “My family would always tell me if I didn’t make it as a television personality than I would be a ‘fly girl’ dancer or an Orthodontist.”
