Reporter Jill Nicolini Jumps From WPIX to WNYW

Jill Nicolini has left WPIX for WNYW.

The popular reporter, who was recently named one of the Hottest TV Traffic Reporters in the country, turned down an offer from the CW-affiliate to join the Fox O&O–a career move that she expects to lead to opportunities beyond traffic.
