Jessica Borg joins KHOU 11

WCBS New York reporter Jessica Borg joins KHOU 11

Just because it is February sweeps doesn't mean the Houston TV stations aren't bringing in new talent.

Earlier, I posted how Maria Salazar joined FOX 26 KRIV.

That prompted reader Taylor to notify me that KHOU posted a new talent bio on its new website.

Jessica Borg comes from New York's WCBS where she was a freelance reporter for the last year according to her LinkedIn. Before that she was a reporter/fill-in anchor for cable outlet News 12 Long Island.

"I feel privileged to tell people’s stories for a living," she wrote on her new bio. "Everyone has a unique story and a voice that should be heard. I enjoy exploring communities and think it’s neat that no 2 days on the job are ever the same."

According to her bio, Borg even got a daytime TV appearance. While reporting on a behind-the-scenes story, Borg landed a guest role on the long-running CBS soap opera, As the World Turns. A rare opportunity for any reporter outside of New York or LA, that's for sure.

From 2004 to 2008 she was an anchor and reporter at WPVI Philadelphia. She was also an anchor and reporter for KDKA Pittsburgh.

Borg graduated from New York University magna cum laude with High Honors and holds a Masters Degree in Journalism from Iona College, where she earned the Edward J. Lovas Journalism Award.
