Jillian McCarthy started her career at KREX in June of 2019. She graduated from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY just a few weeks before moving to Grand Junction. As a Monmouth County, NJ native, Jillian grew up near the beach and loves to spend time with her family and friends.
During her time in college, Jillian anchored for MCTV’s “Weekly News Update.” She also interned at WTNH News 8 in New Haven, CT which she says gave her the best industry experience.
Ever since high school, Jillian knew she wanted to study journalism because she always had a passion for storytelling. She is thrilled to be here on the Western Slope and is enjoying all the outdoor activities the area has to offer. Jillian is excited to cover a wide range of stories in the Grand Valley and couldn’t have imagined a better place to start her career.
