I’ve wanted to be a journalist since I was little kid.

As the solo anchor of KRON4 News at 3 p.m. – I am living the dream! 

I have covered so many incredible stories in the Bay Area and beyond since joining KRON4 in 2011. The most memorable include being on the sidelines during Super Bowl 50, when SF Bat Kid saved the city, the opening and closing of the new span of the Bay Bridge, the devastating North Bay wildfires, hours of live coverage of the January 6th Insurrection, the impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic and hosting KRON4’s New Year’s Live!  I was also the Weekend Evening anchor for almost 7 years helping to launch the new 6pm, 9pm and 10pm broadcasts in Prime Time.

I take pride in telling compelling, compassionate, and clear stories that evoke emotion and action.

Before KRON4, I worked as an anchor and reporter at WCAU in Philadelphia, WHDH in Boston, WFTX in Fort Myers, Florida and WKTV in Utica, New York.

I am a proud graduate from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. 

You might also know my husband, Grant Lodes. He anchors KRON4 News in Prime Time during the week (and we co-host New Year’s Live together). We have two adorable kids – say “HELLO!” if you see us around! 

Let’s connect on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. 

I also would love to share your story – you can send tips/questions/comments to jwaldman@kron4.com.
