Gayle Jessup White
A former award-winning TV reporter and anchor
Gayle Jessup White is a third generation Washingtonian whose lineage extends as far back as the indigenous people who inhabited the Chesapeake area before the arrival of Europeans. Her American roots are in Virginia going back to the Jamestown settlement, and in Maryland. Her international lineage is principally Nigerian and British. She attended the city’s private and public schools and attended Howard University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications. Although she lives in Richmond, Virginia, she still considers herself a “DC girl.” A former award-winning TV reporter and anchor, Gayle began her career in journalism at The New York Times, where she interned in the Washington Bureau. She left the Times for Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, earning a Master of Science in Journalism. Gayle spent several years as a TV news reporter and anchor before becoming a public television producer and show host at her undergraduate alma mater, Howard.
