A Bucks County woman has earned a spot on NBC Nightly News.

Bucks County's Hallie Jackson to Anchor Sunday's NBC Nightly News

The Bucks County Courier Times is reporting the Sunday anchor position on NBC Nightly News will be filled by Hallie Jackson.

Hallie Jackson graduated from Pennsbury High School

Jackson grew up in Lower Makefield, graduated from Pennsbury High School in 2002, and always knew she wanted to be a reporter.

Like many local families, the TV in her childhood home was often tuned into 6ABC Philadelphia for Action News, and she'd watch the reporters hoping one day she'd do the same thing. She was so into it she had the Action News intro music as her ringtone. This is so great. C'mon, everybody in our area knows that intro music.

After Pennsbury High School, Jackson went on to college at Johns Hopkins University and graduated with a degree in political science. During her college years, she interned at a TV station and that solidified her decision to become a reporter.
