NBC10 evening news an­chor Jac­que­line Lon­don gives us an off-cam­era peek at her life.

Philadelphia Style - - Style -

First job: “Life­guard.” Great­est ac­com­plish­ment: “I won an Emmy for a spe­cial I wrote, pro­duced, and hosted.” Ca­reer in­spi­ra­tions: “I took an in­tern­ship at a TV sta­tion in Chicago with the leg­end Bill Kur­tis. Af­ter that, I was hooked.” Typ­i­cal day: “Cof­fee or kom­bucha and then Pi­lates or barre class. I ar­rive at the sta­tion for a 2 pm ed­i­to­rial meet­ing, read and re­write scripts, and then an­chor the 4 and 6 pm news. Then I’ll grab din­ner, record news pro­mos, read scripts for the late news­cast, and an­chor the 11 pm news. I have a fi­nal news meet­ing and then head home to en­joy the last half of The Tonight Show.” Words to live by: “Cher­ish ev­ery stage of your life.” Role mod­els: “My mom has been my ul­ti­mate in­spi­ra­tion. I am proud to say I see her in ev­ery­thing I do, on and off the an­chor desk.” Philadel­phia sto­ries: “My most me­morable in­ter­view was with Gaven Toney, a seventh grader from Ch­ester County. He was born with­out arms or legs and idol­ized the Eagles. De­spite his ob­sta­cles, he was still able to play on his school’s foot­ball team. We were able to get him VIP tick­ets to an Eagles game, and I was on the side­lines with the 12-year-old when he met his fa­vorite play­ers. The story ended up win­ning an Emmy, but the real joy was see­ing his re­ac­tion on the field.” Hid­den tal­ents: “I play the pi­ano.” Me in three words: “Happy. Pa­tient. Grate­ful.” Get so­cial: @Jac­que­linelon­don
