Jamie Ostroff eagerly joined NBC4 from Shreveport, Lousiana, where she worked as an anchor and investigative reporter. During her time there, Jamie exposed corruption in the justice system, held top law enforcement and government officials accountable, and reported from the ground during tornadic outbreaks and Hurricane Laura.
Jamie was born and raised in the Washington, DC area. Her roots in the nation’s capital form the foundation of her passion for government and policy, public affairs, culture, and justice. That passion has led her through newsrooms in Idaho, Florida, New York, and Alabama, where she learned firsthand that a well-told story can ignite compassion, bring a community together and make a real impact. Over her ten years as a journalist, Jamie’s reporting has earned numerous professional accolades, including an Emmy award and multiple nominations.
A graduate of the University of Miami, Jamie earned her degree in Broadcast Journalism in 2009. In 2018, Jamie returned to school for a master’s degree in Legal Studies from the Pepperdine Caruso School of Law.
When she happens to come across some spare time, Jamie enjoys college football, trying new restaurants, hiking, and the occasional Netflix binge. Jamie has also dabbled in standup comedy. While she still likes to write jokes, she much prefers being in the audience these days.
Jamie looks forward to holding Central Ohio’s powerful accountable and getting answers to your most important questions. If you have a story tip, feedback, or a restaurant recommendation – don’t hesitate to get in touch!
