Dancer & Traveler

Jobeth's love for the islands, its culture and dance blossomed at a young age. Most of her days growing up were spent in the dance studio or on a stage entertaining a crowd with her Hula, Tahitian and Philippine Folk dance skills. She has traveled and competed at events across the globe, including the Heiva in Tahiti in 2012.

The Inside Scoop on Jobeth

Affable. Compassionate. Ambitious. That’s how Jobeth’s family and friends would describe her. But of course, she is more than that…

Born in Long Beach, CA and raised in San Diego, Jobeth was a Navy Baby… literally. She’s youngest of 3.

She’s always lived an active lifestyle and started dancing Hula, Tahitian and Philippine Folk at the age of 8, performing and competing on stages around the world. She also grew up playing sports, including basketball and softball.

In 2011, Jobeth graduated from San Diego State University with a BA in Communications and a minor Public Relations. Shortly after, she began her journey in broadcast television – saying goodbye to the Westcoast and hello to the Midwest.

After spending nearly 4 years in Nebraska fulfilling roles such as producer, multimedia journalist (MMJ), reporter and traffic anchor at KHGI and KETV – Jobeth made a move to the Aloha state.

She joined the Hawaii News Now (KGMB/KHNL) team in 2016 and went on to cover memorable stories like President Barack Obama’s final run in the White House and the historic homecoming of Hokule’a, the Polynesian voyaging canoe, after its 3-year worldwide journey sailing the seas with only the guidance of the stars, sun and wind.

In early 2018, Jobeth stepped away from news and was given the opportunity to help launch a new lifestyle show called HI Now (Hawaii Now). She took on the role as host/producer and revolutionized the way people viewed storytelling – sharing engaging stories that shined a spotlight on local businesses. Two years later, Jobeth won her first Emmy award!

In early 2020, another opportunity came knocking on the door that Jobeth couldn’t pass up, this time with the NBC family. She left her island home and made the move to Dallas, TX where she would help launch a new national network and news program, NBC LX.

 

NBC LX aims to share engaging stories with millennials and Gen-Z’ers who don’t necessarily watch and absorb the news the traditional way our parents and grandparents did.

 

When Jobeth isn’t busy working, you can catch her kicking back with her family, her Shiba Inu dog, Koba or refining her skills in golf.
