Jackie Mundry is a multiskilled journalist at NEWS CENTER Maine in Portland, covering politics, public safety, and health care issues across the state.
Jackie joined the team as a Bangor MSJ in May of 2018 and moved to Portland in June of 2020. Since then Jackie has had the chance to tell stories from just about every corner of the state. She also traveled to Canada, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, New York, Utah, and Washington state to tell stories that matter to Mainers.

Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University in 2017.
Jackie is a former competitive figure skater turned two-time marathoner who also enjoys spending time with her chocolate lab, Opie, reading, cheering on all the Boston teams, and getting on her figure skates as much as she can.
