On the weekends, you can watch me anchor on KRON4 News at 8pm and 10pm.
During the week, I am the lead multimedia journalist. Being an MMJ means I enterprise original content, do interviews, then write, shoot, edit my story and run my own live shots. At the same time, I send out updates to tens of thousands of people on Twitter (@JustineWaldman), Facebook (KRON 4 Justine Waldman), Instagram (@justinewaldman) and KRON4.com. Yep, it is a lot of work! But when you love what you do, it’s not a problem.
I have covered some incredible stories in the Bay Area since joining KRON 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 Bay Bridge, the devastating North Bay wildfires and hosting New Years Live.
But the best stories come from viewers who need help or a shoulder to cry on. I take pride in telling compelling, compassionate and clear stories that evoke emotion and action.
Before KRON, 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 a 5pm and 9pm during the week.
Becoming a mother is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Even though I work late at night, I am up early taking my kids to all the parks, beaches and museums (and bakeries) the Bay Area has to offer.
