Jason Frazer, a general assignment reporter for 10TV News HD, not only knows news but how to run a retail banking branch.
Frazer graduated from Columbia University in 2005. He started his professional career as a Management Associate with Citibank.
Frazer's first professional experience as a journalist began as a Web producer for WCBS-TV, New York's CBS affiliate. He was responsible for editing all wire and staff written stories and publishing them on various section pages. Jason eventually moved onto 1010 WINS, New York's all news radio station, where he held the same position with similar responsibilities.
Two years after graduating, Frazer was a freelance radio reporter for WBGO-FM in Newark, N.J. He filed weekly reports for the hourly newscast and news specials on various topics.
In 2007, he left Citibank and then became a branch manager with JP Morgan Chase. He oversaw $25 million in assets. Jason was successful at turning one of the lowest performing branches into the top banking center in the district.
The following year, Frazer was hired as a part time Freelance Reporter for News 12 in Bronx/Westchester, N.Y. During his tenure at News 12, he covered a variety of stories including the high profile case of Sean Bell, a Queens man shot to death by the New York Police Department.
In October 2008, Frazer was hired in Rochester, N.Y. as a reporter at WROC/WUHF-TV. Some of the stories he covered included a tornado that touched down in western New York and a plane crash that occurred at the Rochester airport. He was also responsible for the Good Business Report, a bi-monthly segment highlighting the technology developed by Rochester based firms.
In his spare time, Jason enjoys bowling, whitewater rafting, traveling and watching the New York Giants.
