Jason Hawkins joined the NBC Connecticut team in March of 2011 and currently serves as feature reporter for "Feast TV" and "This Weekend" special segments.
Jason graduated magna cum laude from Emerson College in Boston with a degree in communications/television.
He began his television career as a producer and writer for several national networks, including HGTV, Travel Channel and the Food Network. Jason then moved in front of the camera, hosting food and restaurant segments for a popular Boston/New England food show and lending his voice to Food Network specials.
Jason’s love of food and storytelling inspired him to create CPTV's popular restaurant series, Eating CT, which made its debut in 2008 and was the network's second-highest rated show. Eating CT received 6 New England Emmy Award nominations, winning two and earning Jason a nomination for his work as host.
Jason's other passions include playing his keyboards and writing music, watching all the Boston sports teams and, of course, spending time in the gym to work off all that food he eats around the state!
