Jillian Hartmann

Being a ‘Burgh girl at heart, Jillian is thrilled to be back in her hometown.

She grew up in the Wexford area and is a Pine-Richland alum. Even at a young age, Jillian knew she wanted to work in the news industry. After shadowing WPXI news anchors, Peggy Finnegan and David Johnson, she wanted nothing more than to be a journalist.

In college, she was a newsroom intern at WPXI. She graduated with a broadcast journalism degree at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University.

Since then, she’s been pursuing her reporting career. Jillian was a reporter at WJAC-TV in Johnstown, PA for two years. Then, she moved to Florida where she was the morning news reporter at Fox 4 in Fort Myers.

But nothing beats being back at home, where she’s with her family, friends and reporting for the news station she grew up watching.
