Jennifer Mobilia joined the Eyewitness News team in June 2012. When she's not co-anchoring the 5:30 p.m. newscast, she's covering the stories that impact Southern New England.
Prior to joining the Eyewitness News team, Jennifer worked as an Anchor/Reporter in Buffalo, New York; Fort Myers, Florida; and her hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania.
Jennifer has had the honor of covering several high-profile stories for CNN's Anderson Cooper and Nancy Grace. To this day she remains the only television news reporter in the country granted exclusive prison access to Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong, the convicted mastermind in Erie's notorious Pizza Bomber Bank Robbery. Her exclusive reports helped JET-TV earn an Excellence In Broadcasting award from the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters for its coverage of the Pizza Bomber Bank Robbery Trial in 2010.
Jennifer grew up on a 250-acre vineyard along the shores of Lake Erie, where her parents own a winery and fruit market. She's a graduate of Mercyhurst College with degrees in Journalism and Business Management. In her free time Jennifer enjoys spending time with her Standard Poodle "Anna", shopping, traveling and trying new desserts.
