Jessica Wang started her journalistic career in the fast-moving world of sports reporting, though quickly branched out into the general news and education beats for newspapers in Shreveport, LA and Stockton, CA. After stints at CBS Radio and the ABC News Investigative Unit, she found her home at PBS – spending time at Wide Angle, NOW, and Frontline, before joining the Bill Moyers team on a documentary exploring evangelical Christians and their shifting attitudes toward the environment called Is God Green? She continued on to her role as producer for the weekly current affairs show Bill Moyers Journal, where she reported on topics ranging from America’s urban crisis to health care to the poetry and arts. Her produced hour with The Wire creator David Simon was recently nominated for an Emmy award for Outstanding Interview.
