After five years as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor at Sunbeam’s WHDH in Boston, Jennifer Eagan is taking a walk across the street to Hearst’s WCVB.

“Jennifer’s outstanding reporting skills coupled with her local knowledge of the region, our newsmakers, and the stories that are important to the community, make her an ideal addition to Channel 5’s exceptional news team,” read the carefully crafted words of WCVB President and General Manager Bill Fine.

Those PR folks are wordsmiths.

She, according this press release here, is thrilled.
“I am thrilled to join the NewsCenter 5 team. I have always admired the range and quality of work produced by WCVB as well as their in-depth look at issues in our area. Having grown up in Wrentham, I greatly value Channel 5’s dedication to informing the people in my home state – WCVB sets the standard for news in Boston.”

Did you like how she name-dropped her hometown to underline her hometown cred? Masterful.
