Las Vegas News Director Leaves TV for Real Estate

By Chris Ariens 

Cristi Jessee has left TV news and gone into real estate.

Jessee was, until February, news director at Las Vegas Fox affiliate KVVU.

“I’m very excited to let you all know that I’ve passed the real estate licensing test and am now working for The Preheim Group – Keller Williams Southern Nevada,” she wrote on Facebook Wednesday. “I am staying in Vegas, and if you live here, you will probably hear from me soon. I feel very excited and blessed about this new chapter!”


Jessee had been news director at the Meredith-owned station for two years. Before that she was news director at KBAK in Bakersfield and KSAX in Alexandria, MN. Her 20-year TV news career has also taken her to KARE, WDAZ, KTHV, KCBS and KXTV.
