Jackie De Tore
Jackie joined the WABI TV5 News Team in June 2012. She's a New York native, but is excited to start her career in Central Maine.
Jackie is a proud Hofstra University Alum, Roll Pride! Much of her college career was spent anchoring and reporting behind a microphone at 88.7 FM WRHU as an Assistant News Director. She spent her weekends as an on-air personality spinning her favorite country songs at WJVC My Country 96.1 on Long Island.
Her most memorable on camera experience came in February 2012. Jackie was chosen as the KABC/Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences "On The Red Carpet" College Journalist at the 84th Annual Academy Awards. She reported live from the red carpet, interviewing some of Hollywood's biggest stars such as Meryl Streep, Tina Fey, and her favorite, George Clooney.
When she's not reporting or at the anchor desk, Jackie enjoys reading, catching up on her reality TV, rooting for her favorite teams, and spending time with her family and friends.
