Jackie Cain anchors 5 Eyewitness News alongside Paul Folger weeknights on KSTP-TV. She came to the Twin Cities from Pittsburgh, where she was an anchor and reporter at WTAE-TV. Jackie is a proud honors graduate of West Virginia University's Reed College of Media.
Early in her career in Ohio, Jackie reported on Dr. Bennet Omalu and his discovery of CTE during the autopsy of famed Steelers Center Mike Webster, which is now portrayed in the major motion picture "Concussion." Jackie was given a small role in the movie when it was being filmed in Pittsburgh. She also serves on the board of the Patrick Risha CTE Awareness Foundation.
Since arriving in the Twin Cities, Jackie has represented 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS with several nonprofits, including Children's Hospital Association and Open Arms of Minnesota. Jackie lives in St. Paul with her husband Alex and their dogs Ollie and Hank Williams. Their favorite spots to take the dogs are Minnehaha Dog Park, Fort Snelling and to a friend's cabin on Gull Lake.
