Jenna Flanagan first knew she was destined for a career in journalism after following the weekly reports of the Muppet News Flash as a child. She took her first job in the business as a Production Assistant for 1010WINS, eventually working her way up to assistant editor. From there she took her first on-air position at WBGO, Newark Public Radio, and began a lifelong love of public broadcasting. After WBGO, Ms. Flanagan spent more than six years writing, reporting and producing All Things Considered for WNYC in New York City. Flanagan began contributing her statewide reports to WNET Thirteen’s news magazine, MetroFocus in 2015 and later joined the MetroFocus team as a fulltime journalist and host in 2016.
