Nicole Jacobs joined WBZ-TV as a General Assignment Reporter September 2014. She can be seen weekday mornings sharing stories in a city she has grown to love. Before joining WBZ, Jacobs worked at WFXT and NECN in Boston.

During her time in Massachusetts, she has covered a wide range of stories, from the tragic Newtown, Connecticut school massacre to the capture of mob boss James ‘Whitey’ Bulger. One special project series Jacobs is especially proud of during her time in Boston is her year-long “Fight For Pink” series, where she featured breast cancer survivors, their struggles, their fight and their future.

Jacobs comes to Boston from Hartford, CT where she was a General Assignment Reporter and Fill in Anchor at WTIC. Prior to making the 800 mile move to the Northeast, she was a General Assignment Reporter at WXII in Winston Salem, North Carolina—where she covered the Virginia Tech massacre.

Jacobs started her television news career in Raleigh, North Carolina, first as an Assignment Editor, then Producer and eventually, a General Assignment Reporter. While in Raleigh, she covered the beginning stages of the Duke Lacrosse Rape accusations.

Jacobs graduated Cum Laude from North Carolina State University, home of the Wolfpack. During her college years, she could be seen on the sidelines as an NC State Cheerleader, and later as a member of the NC State Dance Team.

Jacobs grew up in Kinston, North Carolina. It may seem surprising, but before her television career, she was a middle school teacher in her hometown. As an avid runner, Jacobs is currently training for her third Boston Marathon.

When she’s not reporting, she enjoys traveling, working out, and cooking up good southern meal.
