Jason Frazer joined Fox 28 as Chief Forecaster in August 2017.
As a child, Jason knew early on that TV was he calling. Growing up, his mother can recall him mimicking a meteorologist each morning. Jason’s passion for Broadcast Journalism has taken him to several states including Georgia, New York, Ohio, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. He’s covered almost every weather event from tornadoes and hurricanes to blizzards.
Jason got his break into broadcasting in 1993 at the age of 12 when he won a contest to host WNYC-FM New York Kids Radio Show for a day.
After studying Political Science at Columbia University, Jason was offered an opportunity to learn how to manage a bank branch through Citibank’s Management Associate Program. He learned not only about how to sell mortgages, checking and investment accounts but he also learned how to manage a department at the age of 23.
At 24, he accepted a position at JP Morgan Chase as one of the youngest branch managers in the nation. There, he managed $25 million in balances, $10 million in investment accounts and a staff of 10.
With a burning desire to return back to television, Jason was able to freelance for the News 12 Networks throughout the NYC area. Using that experience, he was able to obtain a Reporter position with WROC-TV, the CBS affiliate in Rochester, NY. After spending two years in Rochester, Jason accepted a General Assignment Reporter position at WBNS-TV, the CBS affiliate in Columbus, OH.
After spending three years in Ohio, in 2013, Jason relocated to CT to work for WFSB-TV Channel 3 Eyewitness News the CBS affiliate in Hartford, CT. During his three years at WFSB-TV, he not only reported on various breaking news stories but also contributed to WFSB’s Investigative Unit and filled in on the Anchor desk.
In 2016, Jason became an Investigative Reporter for NBC Boston and NECN, New England’s 24 hour Cable Station. He uncovered how landlords in Massachusetts were improperly placing young children on eviction notices which impacted their ability to obtain credit and future housing.
Jason’s passion for Broadcasting has also led to several acting gigs. In April 2015, Jason Frazer made his first network TV appearance on NBC’s American Odyssey. Using his real life skills as a News Anchor, Jason played the character of Tom informing viewers about a terrorist threat.
Jason enjoys Cooking, Traveling, Bowling, Whitewater Rafting, Wine Tasting, Acting and Football. He is a huge Fantasy Football Fan and one of the best Spades’ players you’ll ever meet.
