Jess Plue joined the ABC23/FOX8 family in 2017 as the weekday evening anchor.

She started her television career in Lancaster behind the camera, but quickly developed a desire to go out into communities and tell the stories herself. She then moved to Iowa as a reporter, where she covered everything from breaking news to feature stories. Most notably, she covered the 2016 presidential race, interviewing candidates such as current Vice President, Mike Pence, and Ben Carson.

Jess is a proud Elizabethtown College alum, who graduated with a bachelor’s in Mass Communications. During her time at Etown, she was deeply involved with ECTV, Melica (the college’s all-female a Capella group) and the college’s dance club. Her goal was always to make it back to Pennsylvania and be able to continue telling stories while being closer to family and was ecstatic to begin her journey with the ABC23/FOX8 family.

Jess loves the outdoors, animals and staying active. She is also a self-described “foodie”. You can connect with her on social media at @JessPlue. Have a story? Send it her way at
