Evening Anchor for 44News/WEVV.
Jessica Hartman is the Evening Anchor for 44News/WEVV. Colorado-born and raised, Missouri-educated, and proud to continue calling the Midwest home.
My passion for journalism was sparked at an early age. Turning on the evening news and preparing for the day with the local morning show were staples in my family’s routine. It taught me the importance of understanding what is going on around you, in order to make an informed decision about your own life.
Each day I strive to bring the most important facts to the Tri-State, so we, as a community can make the best decisions possible.
Before becoming a part of the 44News Team and the Tri-State, I spent three years as a Senior Reporter in Waterloo, Iowa. It was there that I discovered the true joy in storytelling. My love of this job is tied closely to the people I meet, the amazing stories they have to tell, and the trust they instill in me to share their message with our community.
Over the past few years, I have had the honor of being nominated for a Regional Emmy for my work with the Knox Blocks Foundation, covered the 2016 Presidential campaign from start to finish in the First-in-the-Nation Caucus state of Iowa, conducted one-on-one interviews with candidates, governors & senators, and have been on the ground to witness the devastating effects of extreme weather and share the stories of neighbors coming together to rebuild.
Outside of the newsroom, I am a proud 4-H & FFA alumni and a member of the Colorado 4-H Hall of Fame. I am an advocate of agriculture and the men and women, who work tirelessly to feed America.
Growing up on a cattle ranch and sod farm in Southeastern Colorado is an experience I treasure. I continue to have a hand in the family operation, ProHart Seed Stock, raising pure-bred Gelbvieh cattle to help producers improve herd genetics. That continued connection to my agricultural roots keeps me grounded.
I am also a member of the Junior League of Evansville, a Double-Gold Level Figure Skater, and enjoy motivational speaking focusing on goal setting and empowering young women.
