Guest Biography: 

Jessica joined NBC Right Now and SWX in 2014 and now serves as Sports Director and Weekday Sports Anchor.

Jessica Benson serves as the Sports Director and Weekday Sports Anchor for KNDU and SWX in the Tri-Cities. Jessica grew up in Denver, CO, but she has family in Gig Harbor, Seattle, Moses Lake, Lake Chelan, Spokane, Lewiston (ID), and even right down the street in Kennewick.

Before joining KNDU, Jessica could be seen on the sidelines as a reporter for the Sun Belt Network.  She also served as a reporter for 247sports (a Rival's property) at all home and away football games for the USC Trojans.  

Jessica graduated Summa Cum Laude from USC in May 2014 with a degree in Broadcast and Digital Journalism.  While at USC, Jessica served as an Executive Producer for Annenberg TV News, the school's student-run nightly news program.  She has also worked for ESPN's "SportsNation," NBC's production of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, the Rose Bowl (2012-14), the 2014 BCS National Championship Game and NBC Nightly News.

Once upon a time, Jessica worked as a ball-girl for the 2002, '03 and '04 NCAA Finals Fours and had the privilege of wiping up sweat off the court from future hall of fame coaches Roy Williams, Jim Calhoun and Billy Donovan.  She is not opposed to someday becoming the first adult ball-girl so that she can live a long and happy life underneath the basket during March Madness.
