Jessica Rouse was born and bred in the Hunter Valley having lived in Rutherford her whole life.
At 23 years old, this is her second radio gig. Fresh out of the University of Newcastle, with a Bachelor of Communication majoring in Journalism, she landed a 12 month job as a newsreader at 2NURFM in Newcastle where she learned more about radio news than she could’ve possibly imagined.
Jess lives and breathes news and jumped at the chance to talk even more about it at 2NM in February 2018.
Jess is passionate about the Hunter Valley and the people who live in it. She loves telling a story, having a chat to local people and giving air time to the issues people are facing.
She’s not too opinionated and always tries to get each side to every story from politics to everyday issues faced by the local community.
Away from the newsroom, Jess giggles too much (even in the newsroom!) and never fails to bring you a smile.
She’s excited to continue living the newsreaders dream in the beautiful Hunter Valley.
