Two New Faces Join WPSG Philadelphia
The CBS-owned CW affiliate in Philadelphia has hired Jessica Boyington, a former Miss New Jersey USA, and Matt Nadu, a local sports blogger. Boyington and Nadu join The CW Philly Crew (Everett Jackson and Kharisma McIlwaine) in representing the station as on-air hosts and ambassadors in the community.
Boyington, who has also served as a back-up traffic reporter for WPSG and co-owned KYW, was crowned Miss New Jersey USA in 2006 while still a college student. After graduating from Rowan University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications, she pursued her career in front of the camera and behind the microphone as a guest host on morning radio on Q102 and Wired 96.5 in Philadelphia and as a co-host on Sirius Hits 1 on Sirius Satellite radio. She has also made an appearance in a featured role on the hit TV shows Royal Pains and the feature films Sex and the City 2, and How Do You Know? Boyington is an accomplished dancer who has worked as a dance instructor and has done some modeling, working as a briefcase model on the hit game show, Deal or No Deal.
Before becoming part of the CW team, Nadu was a columnist and promotions assistant for The NBC website in Philadelphia and a production assistant at WCAU there. In addition to working with ESPN on game-day operations, he is a columnist for HighHopesBlog.com with articles featured on CBSsportsline.com and baseball-reference.com. Along with writing, Nadu has appeared on such hit shows as The Good Wife and Curb Your Enthusiasm as well as in numerous commercials. He can also be seen on the big screen in upcoming flicks such as Down the Road with Clint Howard, and Booted with Alan Ruck and Ryan Dunn.
Nadu earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in broadcast journalism from Temple University in 2008.
