The Hosts

Jackie Bruno

You may recognize Jackie Bruno from the news. She spent the last 10 years anchoring and reporting at NECN and NBC 10 Boston. Before that, she was a trusted source in Springfield, Massachusetts where she worked as an anchor and reporter. Now, Jackie is the proud owner, founder, and CEO of “Newsmaker Marketing”, a PR firm that is revolutionizing how PR is done. This group of former journalists not only pitch stories to the media, but they also create content directly to a company’s social media and website. At “Newsmaker Marketing”, storytelling is paramount and we focus on the stories that matter to your audience. Jackie is also a devoted mentor to other women. She is a member of the alumni mentorship program at Boston University, where she graduated with honors in 2006. She also is the founder of “The Connect-Her”: a networking organization to help professional women achieve their personal and professional goals. Jackie believes that female friendship and support is critical for women throughout their lives. It’s a lesson she first learned in pageants, after representing the Bay State at two national pageants- Miss Teen USA where she made the top five and Miss USA where she placed in the top ten. Jackie resides in her hometown area of the south coast of Massachusetts with her husband, two boys, and beloved shih tzu Buddy.
