She’s received awards for her work, including with local television and radio stations. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Colby’s Journey to a Career In Front of the Cameras

Jamie is no stranger to appearing in front of the camera, as she was offered commercial work during her childhood years, appearing in a commercial for KC & The Sunshine Band, and also one for Burger King during her teens. She proved to have exceptional intelligence, and at the age of 14, she was admitted to college.

She attended the University of Miami’s International School of Business, at which she studied for a degree in Business Administration and Accounting. After completing her degree, she went on to pursue a Juris Doctor degree at the University Of Miami School Of Law, which at the age of 22 she was able to complete. Prior to her career with Fox, she initially served with CNN at which she was a correspondent. She also became a part of CBS News, which she served as both a reporter and an anchor, filling in for the program “Up to the Minute”. She then went on to do anchor work at both WPIX/WB-11 and WNYW Fox 5 New York, which was one of her earliest works with Fox. She also completed her exams to become an attorney, gaining access to be able to practice law in New York, Florida and California. During this time, she was also a co-anchor and correspondent for FOX News’ WebMD TV.

During the start of her career, she was given the award “Rising News Star to Watch” by Television Week. Since joining Fox she has covered many high profile events; she was one of the reporters who reported the September 11 attacks, and her work there earned her an Edward R. Murrow National Award in 2002, and she also won a Gracie Award for investigative reporting. Aside from that, her work was also honored with the Clarion Award from the Association for Women in Communications. She also continued to serve as an attorney while working in journalism, started her law career by working as a part of an entertainment firm, and as a contributor on “The Tonight Show”. Her connections with the entertainment industry also became a way for her to find a career in news. She is also known to have worked for Johnny Carson on his divorce, and contract renewal with NBC. In 2015, Jamie became the host of the Fox Business show entitled “Strange Inheritance” which covers unusual legacies left behind by people’s friends and family.

The couple was known to have worked on a book entitled “Back to Life After a Heart Crisis: A Doctor and His Wife Share Their 8-Step Cardiac Comeback Plan”.
