Jessica Guay joined 6 News in October 2017, anchoring 6 News at Sunrise from 5:00-7:00 a.m. and 6 News at Noon on WJAC.
She was born and raised in Hockessin, Delaware, about 45 minutes from Philadelphia. She most recently worked for WCHS/WVAH in Charleston, West Virginia as a weekend anchor and reporter. There, she had the opportunity to cover all kinds of stories – including breaking news on the desk and in the field. She learned how to quickly work under pressure and get accurate information to viewers.
She graduated with cum laude from West Virginia University in December 2013 with a degree in television journalism. Immediately upon graduation, she joined WTOV-TV in the Steubenville-Wheeling area, where she was the weekend anchor and a multimedia journalist. She covered a wide variety of stories and learned a vast array of skills – including how to anchor, report, produce, shoot video, and edit.
While attending WVU, she was a reporter and main anchor for WVU’s student-run award-winning newscast, WVU News. She also interned at WBOY-TV in Morgantown and WDEL in Wilmington, Delaware as a multimedia journalist.
In her free time, she enjoys volunteering for different animal shelters and rescues, spending time with her family and going to the Delaware beaches.
She is very excited to be a part of the 6 News team and can’t wait to share your stories. If you would like to share any story ideas with Jessica, you can e-mail her or find her on Facebook or Twitter.
