Natalie Jacobson entered the world of broadcast journalism working at two Boston stations on license renewal, interviewing hundreds of people to “ascertain the needs of the community.” It was an unusual beginning which connected her with her viewers. Following work as a producer, Natalie joined the fledgling Boston station, WCVB-TV, as a reporter in 1972. During her 30 years at Channel 5, most notably as co-anchor of their evening news, she enjoyed a unique relationship with the people of New England. She was honored over the years with several Emmys for her reporting and in 2007 received the Governor’s Award, the highest award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS). Natalie is a licensed pilot and enjoys golf, cooking, boating, and gardening. Most of all, she enjoys being a grandmother to Olivia and James. She resides on Nantucket, Massachusetts.
