Almost five years after leaving Channel 5, veteran Boston newscaster Natalie Jacobson is coming back to the screen - the computer screen - to help launch an Internet news service in Worcester next month.
Jacobson will add her marquee name to GoLocalWorcester, the second local news website from Rhode Island start-up GoLocal24, which inaugurated a similar service in Providence in 2010.
She will join the site as a senior editor, working on investigative journalism projects with a small group of reporters, and occasionally appearing in front of the camera to conduct interviews. “I’m excited about working in news again,’’ Jacobson said, adding she has so far agreed to work part time on an open-ended basis for GoLocalWorcester.
