Jillian Risberg

Multimedia Journalist

Jillian joined WMBD in February 2023 as a Multimedia Journalist.

She previously spent two years at WTAP-TV in Parkersburg, West Virginia as an MMJ; where she covered the stories of the Mid-Ohio Valley, including fracking in the Wayne National Forest and a WV woman formerly addicted to heroin who lost it all – entrusted Jillian with her personal journey of recovery.

In her home state of New Jersey, she reported, wrote, shot and edited stories (a missing New Jersey man buried in an unmarked grave and a Hoboken filmmaker who turned bullying into his mission to save lives) for Hudson TV, a digital news outlet.

And her piece on cults for NewJerseyNewsroom.com gained national attention. 

She is excited to tell the stories of Central Illinois!
