Jessi Turnure

Jessi joined the Region 8 News team in May 2013. She comes to Jonesboro from St. Louis. 

Prior to joining Region 8, Jessi worked as a reporter/anchor at the NBC affiliate in Columbia, Missouri, KOMU-TV. She also spent time at the state capitol as a statehouse reporter.

In spring 2012, Jessi worked as a reporter at the Thomson Reuters TV bureau in Brussels, Belgium. While there, she covered everything from European debt crisis meetings at the European Council and NATO to interviews with Oscar nominees. Jessi also traveled to eight different countries during her time there and hopes to keep adding to that list.

Jessi is a proud Mizzou Tiger, graduating from the Missouri School of Journalism with a degree in broadcast journalism. When she wasn't working at KOMU-TV, Jessi worked as a Journalism Ambassador, giving tours of the school and KOMU-TV to prospective students, and was also active in her sorority, Alpha Delta Pi.  

Jessi is thrilled to call Northeast Arkansas home. She's excited to explore the Natural State more and get more involved in the Region 8 community!
