Jen Cardone joined CBS 42 as a reporter and anchor in 2021.
Jen grew up around the Pittsburgh, PA and Youngstown, OH areas of the country. She got her bachelor’s degree at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, then went on to complete a one-year master program through Syracuse University. Her start in the business was at WNDU in South Bend, IN; she is most recently coming from WDBJ7 based out of Roanoke, VA, where she was set up as a bureau reporter, covering the New River Valley for the station.
Jen is an exercise enthusiast, trained and certified to teach group fitness classes, and she also takes them during her “off time” from work. She has been playing the piano since she was 5 years old. Her passion for traveling was put on hold during the pandemic, but she does love exploring new places and trying different things. Her family currently resides in Northern Virginia; her Mom and Dad moved away from Ohio while Jen was at Duquesne and love living in the Fredericksburg, VA area.
Says Jen, “I never set foot in Alabama until about a month ago, but I’m already excited to call this place home.”
