About Me

The Peoria native and longtime television-news reporter is becoming a Chicago-based correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC. NBCUniversal announced the move late last week.

On her Twitter page, Vespa stated she'll be reporting across all the network's platforms.

"For an Illinois kid who grew up watching NBC, this is a true honor," Vespa wrote.

For the past seven-plus years, Vespa has worked as a reporter and anchor at KGW-TV in Portland, Ore. Her most recent duty kebun binatang bandung was host of "The Story," a KGW weeknight news program that specializes in in-depth reporting of local and regional issues.

In a previous role at KGW, Vespa made national headlines instead of reporting them. A 2019 Facebook post from a viewer chided Vespa for her wardrobe.

"Just wanted to let you know that the clothes you've been wearing, especially those crazy pants that ride half way up your torso, are not cool looking, in any way! ... You're way too pretty to look so foolish," the poster stated.

Vespa responded, in words and in video telecast on KGW.
