Dory Jackson is a writer, editor, reporter, and on-air talent specializing in entertainment news. Although much of her work is entertainment-based, she has enjoyed covering news within the political, lifestyle and business world.
She earned her undergraduate degree from Randolph-Macon College in May 2016. Her focus was on Communications Studies and Journalism. She participated in the R-MC Cheer & Dance Team, Stinger Radio Station, and The Yellow Jacket Newspaper.
Her sophomore year of college is when she realized that she was meant to pursue a career in entertainment journalism after attending Hot 99.5s Jingle Ball — an event where she had her first celebrity interviews with Fifth Harmony and Austin Mahone.
She's worked with news brands such as Celebuzz, Press Pass LA, MTV, Us Weekly and International Business Times. Through Newsweek, she's interviewed dozens of A-List stars, including Zooey Deschanel, Michael B. Jordan, Kristen Bell, Alec Baldwin, Viola Davis, and Laverne Cox. She also previously co-hosted the "Idol Nation" podcast.
Currently, Dory works in New York City as an Associate Editor for PEOPLE. Through this role, she's continued interviewing top-tier stars and has even made major on-camera TV appearances on programs like Good Morning America, ABC News' Nightline and NewsNation Now.
