Jess Briganti

My Hometown:  Poland, Ohio

Education:  B.A in Applied Communication, Kent State University

Interests and Hobbies:  I'm a HUGE foodie! I love discovering new restaurants and trying different types of amazing food! Ohio and Pennsylvania have some hidden gems and I enjoy finding and sharing them. Traveling is also a huge passion of mine. I'm usually not home on the weekends if I can help it!

I've also been bit by the fitness bug. I think healthier food choices and daily exercise are a combo that help you feel better about yourself and give you more energy!

Lastly, I can't leave out jamming out as one of my hobbies.  I'm always listening to music!

Why did you choose Meteorology?  I'm working towards getting a degree in meteorology as I love forecasting for northeast Ohio and western Pennsylvania. I was born and raised in the Valley so I've lived through all the weather patterns we continuously see. It's always important to know what's happening outside your window and waking up with WFMJ Today means that I get to help plan your day!

Favorite Season:  It's tough to pick a favorite season, but I'd have to say fall because of the beautiful colors. All the leaves are changing and you can still wear beautiful coats and scarves for the beginning-without it being bitter cold!

Wacth Jess weekday mornings on WFMJ Today and weekday afternoons on 21 News Midday.
