Jolie Sherman

Jolie Sherman is a reporter for NBC Connecticut. She can be seen Wednesday through Friday in the mornings.

Jolie is a passionate reporter and works to inform her viewers in an engaging and memorable way.

She began her career in news at the start of the pandemic. Her first job was in Burlington, Vermont in June 2020. There, she reported heavily on the coronavirus, informing viewers about state and local guidance, cases, vaccine access, economic impact and inspiring stories of survival.

One of the most memorable moments of her career was speaking with White House Coronavirus Officials Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx who visited Vermont for having the lowest infection rate in the country. She also covered most senior Senator Patrick Leahy’s retirement announcement and reported on a Jewish-Ukrainian family’s story of escape days after Russia invaded Ukraine.

Jolie graduated from Illinois State University in May 2020. That is where she competed on a nationally recognized speech and debate team.

When she is not reporting, Jolie loves catching up with her big family. She was born and raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and is the youngest of five children, including her twin brother (who is only three minutes older). She also enjoys working out, taking in the sights, and calling Connecticut her home!
