NY1 news reporter Jamie Stelter is married to fellow CNN reporter Brian Stelter, who is leaving the affiliate amid the cancellation of his show Reliable Sources.
Brian and Jamie Stelter have been together since 2010 and the couple married four years later.
Who is Brian Stelter’s wife Jamie Shupak Stelter?
Jamie Stelter is an Emmy-nominated journalist who works as an on-air traffic anchor for NY1 News in New York City.
Born in Philadelphia, she attended the University of Maryland, graduating in 2003.
After graduating, she got her first job as a traffic reporter at News 12 Westchester, where she worked her way up to reporter and producer.
She left the network in 2008 and worked as a traffic reporter for other news outlets, including WTXF-FOX 29 and WNBC.
In 2010, she began working at NY1 News and became a “local cult favorite,” according to the New York Post.
Discussing her early morning news schedule, Jamie admitted, “I love the idea of waking people up in the morning. I never really want a 9-to-5 job.”
She also began writing a dating column for Complex magazine, sharing her experiences of dating in the Big Apple.
Then in 2013 she published a novel, Transit Girl, loosely based on her life as she coped with her cheating ex-fiancé, her dream job as a transit reporter, and dating in Manhattan.
“That was the hardest part. I’m single for the first time in my adult life, so I’m really open-minded,” she told the New York Post in 2011.
She continued: “I was lucky. I understand a lot of people are jaded and really negative about dating, but it’s so new and fun to me. I think it’s your attitude and I’m in no great rush.”
When did Brian and Jamie get married?
Jamie met Brian Stelter, who worked for the New York Times in 2013, after asking NY1 presenter Pat Kiernan to play matchmaker via Twitter.
Kiernan introduced Brian to Jamie and they began dating and eventually married a year later in Philadelphia.
In 2019, Jamie posted a copy of the email Brian sent to Kiernan on Twitter with a caption expressing her gratitude for the app bringing them together.
“Nine years ago today @brianstelter sent @patkiernan a direct message that changed my life. I would never say that about current twitter but FOR THIS TWITTER thank god,” she wrote.
“Pat later printed out the DM, put it in a card and gave it to us on our anniversary. It is framed next to our bed.”
An attached photo showed the email Brian sent to Kiernan. It read:
“Two innocent and independent questions: Does Jamie Shupak have a boyfriend? And how often does viewers ask her out?”
For her wedding gift, Kiernan wrote at the bottom of the printed email, “Wishing you a lifetime of ‘innocent and unrelated’ questions.”
The couple now have two children: their daughter Sunny was born in 2017 and a son who was born in 2019.
Why is Brian Stelter leaving CNN?
CNN announced that Brian will be leaving the network following the cancellation of his show Unreliable Sources.
The show’s cancellation comes as CNN’s new chairman, Chris Licht, told company employees that he was “retrofitting” the network’s programming.
The final segment will take place on August 24, 2022, at which time Brian will leave the station. The US Sun has requested comment but received no response.
A CNN spokesman told the New York Times: “We appreciate it [Brian’s] contributions to the network and wish him well in new ventures.”
CNN’s executive vice president of talent and content development, Amy Entelis, said in a statement that Brian is leaving CNN a “flawless broadcaster.”
She added, “We’re proud of what Brian and his team have achieved over the years and we’re confident that their impact and influence will long outlast the show.”
CNN has not yet announced which programs will take the place of Unreliable Sources.
