BuzzNTheBurgh is pleased to announce a new writer who has joined our team Jessica Nath. We are looking forward to seeing what great stories Jess will bring us from here in the Burgh. Keep an eye out for her first story, 10 Best Valentine’s Sweets in Pittsburgh.
Here is a little bit about Jess:
Hello, I’m Jess! I’ve lived my entire life in Pittsburgh and am excited about all the renovation and innovation transforming the Steel City I know and love. Duquesne University is my alma mater, and I have a degree in multiplatform journalism and public relations. Writing has always been a passion of mine. I believe in the power of a good story to create empathy, shed light, spread truth and promote action. So far, my portfolio includes pieces from the Duquesne Duke newspaper, Off the Bluff magazine and DUQ-TV News 14 newscast. While in college, I also had the opportunity to spend two years as a fellow at the local NPR station, 90.5 WESA, where I produced and reported more than 350 stories. Fun fact – I spent my 21st Birthday with the station at Mayor Bill Peduto’s headquarters the night he was elected. Now I am jumping into the world of public relations and advertising, which presents a different style of writing but is a fun challenge. I love this city and am thrilled to have the opportunity to once again write about it and share with everyone the people, places and events that make Pittsburgh so special!
