NESN is excited to announce the hiring of sports anchor and reporter Jahmai Webster (@WebsterOnTV) who will join the network later this month.
Webster will appear on NESN’s three main sports news programs:
• “NESN Sports Today,” every night at 10:00 p.m. (or immediately following Boston Red Sox or Bruins postgame coverage)
• “NESN LIVE,” weeknights at 5:30 p.m.
• “NESN Sports Update,” every morning from 5:00-9:00 a.m.
Webster comes to NESN from Denver’s ABC Affiliate KMGH-Denver7 where he served as sports anchor and co-host of the weekend sports wrap-up program “7SPORTS Xtra.” Prior to working in Denver he spent four years at KITV 4 News in Honolulu, Hawaii, covering college and high school sports as well as special events including the NFL Pro Bowl. Webster graduated from California State University in Northridge with a degree in broadcast journalism. He began his television career as a sports reporter at ABC affiliates in central Texas — KRHD-TV 40 in College Station and KXXV-TV 25 in Waco.
“Jahmai is an exceptional on-air personality, smart and amiable with a wealth of sports knowledge covering every major sport,” said Joseph Maar, NESN’s Vice President of Programming and Production/Executive Producer. “His warm personality and creative style are infectious, an exciting new addition to our roster of on-air talent presenting sports to passionate fans.”
