Jess Todd started at KFVS in October 2021 as a sports reporter and anchor.

Born and raised in Foxboro, Massachusetts, Jess found a love for sports at a very early age with the New England Patriots just minutes from home. In high school, he got his first exposure to broadcasting with the local TV station Foxboro Cable Access.

Jess is a proud graduate of Michigan State University, earning his degree in journalism, and also winning a national championship in lacrosse with the Spartans' MCLA team in 2018.

Before KFVS, Jess worked as a Content Associate with ESPN in Bristol, CT and Charlotte, NC. He contributed to SportsCenter as well as coverage of NCAA lacrosse.

While he enjoys the excitement that games and highlights bring, Jess is excited to meet and tell the stories of players, coaches, fans and everyone else that make Heartland Sports so special. If you see him out and about, make sure to say hi!

In his free time, Jess can found staying active with different sports (he's better at reporting on them), exploring new places and watching the latest MARVEL movie.
