Faith Jessie reports weekdays on News 3. She joined the team in October of 2016.
Faith comes to Las Vegas from Binghamton, New York where she was a weekend anchor and reporter at Fox 40. During her time in New York's Southern Tier, Faith followed New York delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, covered the presidential campaign trail, and hit the mat with professional Mixed Martial Arts fighters.
Faith discovered her interests in storytelling while obsessing over the local news in her hometown, Tampa, Florida. She took her first step on her own news journey by anchoring the morning news at Joe. E Newsome High School. Faith's desire to explore news outside of Florida landed her on the west coast where she attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
While studying at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, Faith reported for Annenberg Television News (ATVN) and was a founding member of USC's chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists.
When Faith is not bringing you stories, she's busy making her own. In her free time, Faith is always searching for the best hiking trails, catching up with her parents and younger siblings over FaceTime, taking an impromptu weekend road trip, attending every live music concert she can get into and spending time with her newly rescued chihuahua named Bella.
Faith is very excited to call Las Vegas home and is looking forward to getting to know and work with all of the News 3 viewers.
