Jillian Petrus joined the KCRG-TV9 News team in December of 2010. Jillian grew up in Geneva, Illinois, a northwest suburb of Chicago.
Jillian is proud to be a University of Iowa alumni. She admits spending most of her time as Hawkeye working for the college's award winning student newscast, Daily Iowan Television. She served as both Executive Producer and News Director before graduating in May 2010. During that time, she also worked as a news intern for KCRG.
Before coming to KCRG, Jillian worked as a reporter/photographer for WEHT-TV News 25 in Evansville, Indiana covering everything from politics to crime and education. While she enjoyed her time in Evansville, she says she's thrilled to be back in Cedar Rapids.
Jillian says the best thing about reporting for Eastern Iowa is talking with the engaging, hardworking incredible people that make up the heart of the midwest. In her spare time, Jillian says she enjoys walking by the Ellis River, reading or catching a good movie.
