About the Author:
Jen Maxfield is an Emmy Award–winning reporter and substitute anchor who started at NBC New York in 2013. Prior to joining the station, she worked for Eyewitness News (ABC7) in New York City as a reporter and substitute anchor for ten years. Jen started her broadcast career in Binghamton, New York (WIVT), in 2000 and also worked in Syracuse (WIXT) before moving to New York City in 2002. She has reported live from thousands of news events over her twenty-two-year career and estimates she has interviewed more than ten thousand people.
Maxfield is also an adjunct professor at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University. A graduate of the class of 2000, Maxfield enjoys coming back to her alma mater to educate the next generation of journalists. She finds it incredibly rewarding to work with young people as they launch their careers in news.
Maxfield and her husband, Scott, met as undergraduate students at Columbia. They live in New Jersey and have three children and a dog named Rocket.
Returning to find these people years?even decades?after she featured their stories on the news gives Maxfield an opportunity to ask the burning questions she had always pondered: What happened after the live truck pulled away? What is the rest of the story?
