Special featured guest Jillian Barberie, KTTV's outspoken anchorwoman, drops by the set periodically to fill the The X Show crew in on "Women in the News." During each weekly segment, Jillian targets a variety of women in the news, ranging from important sports and political figures, to starlettes, to women who are just plain interesting.
Each morning, Jillian can be seen making her own special kind of weather forecasts for the Fox 11 Morning News and the Emmy award-winning Good Day LA, seen weekdays at 6:00 and 7:00 AM on KTTV/FOX 11. She also files reports for "Fox Style," the weekly segment that spotlights the hottest and hippest trends in fashion. Good Day LA was lauded with the 1997 Los Angeles area Emmy award for Best Daytime Newscast from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Jillian joined Good Day LA in June 1995 after two years as weather anchor on the weeknight editions of the Emmy winning Fox 11 News at 10. Jillian joined KTTV/FOX 11 in October 1993.
Since joining KTTV/FOX 11, Jillian has provided live coverage of weather-related disasters in Southern California, including the 1998 El Nino storms. She provided live reports from around the Southland for Fox Overtime, KTTV's post-game show that followed the 1995 and 1996 NFL games.
Jillian's talents beyond the weather map have earned her special appearances on several hit TV series, including three episodes of the syndicated V.I.P. with Pamela Anderson Lee, Beverly Hills, 90210, the series finale of Melrose Place, ABC's Clueless and Key West. She's also appearing in an upcoming issue of Bikini magazine.
Jillian joined KTTV/FOX 11 from WSVN, the Fox station in Miami, Fla., where she had worked since February 1992 as the weeknight weathercaster on their 5, 6 and 10 PM newscasts. During 1992's devastating Hurricane Andrew, she provided live reports on the disaster for 48 hours straight. While there, Jillian also reported the weekly segments "7 Freestyle," about sports and entertainment, and "Express Yourself," concerning topical issues.
Jillian can now be seen on the top-rated NFL pregame show, "FOX NFL Sunday," on FOX affiliates nationwide.
Jillian graduated from Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology in Hamilton, Ontario (Canada) with a broadcast journalism degree.
