Jessica Beth Career
She was the eldest daughter of Florence (née Goldberger), a navy nurse, and David Savitch, who ran a clothing store. Her father and maternal grandfather were Jewish, and her maternal grandmother was Italian American and Catholic. After her father died at age 33 in 1959, her family moved to Margate City, New Jersey (a suburb of Atlantic City), where she attended Atlantic City High School. According to her two biographers, Gwenda Blair and Alanna Nash, Savitch was haunted throughout her life by her father’s untimely death and pursued a career partly to compensate for the loss.
While in high school in Atlantic City, Savitch got a job co-hosting a show for teenagers on the radio station WOND in Pleasantville, New Jersey. She enjoyed the work and soon became a newsreader and disc jockey for WOND as well. She was the first female disc jockey in that area.
