    Jason Frazer joined NBC Boston and necn as an investigative reporter in July of 2016. 

    Jason not only knows news, but how to run a bank. He graduated from Columbia University with a bachelor’s degree in political science and started his professional career as a management associate with Citibank.

    While working at the bank, he was also a web producer for WCBS-TV in New York. He was responsible for editing all wire and staff written stories and publishing them on various section pages. Jason eventually moved on to 1010 WINS, New York's all news radio station, where he held the same position with similar responsibilities. 

    Jason was also a freelance radio reporter for WBGO-FM in Newark, N.J. He filed weekly reports for the hourly newscast and news specials on various topics. 

    In 2007, he left Citibank to became a branch manager with JP Morgan Chase. He oversaw $25 million in assets. He was successful at turning one of the lowest performing bank branches into the top banking center in the district. 

    The following year, Jason was hired as a part-time freelance reporter for News 12 in Bronx/Westchester, N.Y. During his tenure at News 12, he covered a variety of stories, including the high profile case of Sean Bell, a Queens man shot to death by the New York Police Department. 

    Jason got his full-time start as a general assignment/good business reporter for WROC/WUHF-TV in Rochester, New York and has also reported for WBNS-TV in Columbus, Ohio, where he got the chance to interview then Republican vice presidential candidate and Congressman Paul Ryan. 

    Three years later, Jason joined WFSB-TV, Channel 3 Eyewitness News in Hartford, Connecticut. He was also a member of the Investigative Team, where he uncovered how the state was wasting thousands of dollars on consolidating their police dispatch centers and how the power company Eversource was having a historic year on Wall Street while pushing for a massive bill increase for its customers. 

    In his spare time, Jason enjoys bowling, cooking, whitewater rafting, mixed marital arts, traveling and watching the New York Giants. However, when they’re not playing, he of course supports the New England Patriots.
