Jessob Reisbeck is an anchor on FOX 6 WakeUp. He joined the WITI team in June of 2013. He is an Emmy-nominated journalist that couldn’t be more excited about being back in Wisconsin. It is his 3rd time living in the great “Cheese State”. He began his life in Wisconsin Rapids and his broadcasting career in Wausau (WAOW-TV).
He moved from Rapids to Irvine, CA when he was 5 years-old, but visited Wisconsin on a regular basis to see grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Jessob graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication at Arizona State University. In addition to working in Wausau, he’s also made career stops in Syracuse, NY (WSTM-TV) & Fresno, CA (KMPH-TV).
After covering sports for 8+ years, Jessob makes the transition to full-time news anchor. He filled in as a morning anchor and as a news reporter in Fresno, and that’s where he discovered Kai, the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker. The viral ‘Smash’ took the two on a crazy ride, even landing them on the Jimmy Kimmel Live Show in February, 2013.
In his spare time, Jessob loves golfing, watching sports, and spending time with the ones close to him.
Oh yea, and yes, he does wear two watches.
