Jordan EarlyCongratulations to Jordan Early (Class of 2010) as she says farewell to friends and coworkers at Pittsburgh’s KDKA-TV for a move to the Fox News Channel in NYC.

She’ll be the new, behind-the-scenes friend at ‘Fox and Friends.’   It’s a very early morning job– and Jordan’s has been working the nightside at KDKA where she produces the 10 o’clock hour long newscast for the CW in Pittsburgh.  Her new early position will put her in the Fox News producer’s booth during the live broadcast.  There she will be on headset with the director and on-air gang each weekday morning.

Fox and FriendsJordan’s journey began at Westminster Cable She worked behind the scenes and in front of the camera at WCN.  She’s worked in television news as a producer and reporter in Mobile, New Orleans, West Palm Beach and Orlando.

We’re very proud of Jordan.  Her impressive resume` is built on genuine experience, ambition and tenacity.   She completed two internships while at Westminster.  She worked a summer at CNN in New York and traveled to London the following year for an internship at the CBS News Bureau.  Experience, drive and determination has served Jordan well.  She embraces and values professional networking.  Jordan continues to graciously offer advice to our current students, coaching them to sharpen their writing skills.  She keeps in touch with faculty and friends no matter where life takes her.

I cannot stress how proud we are of Jordan and we wish her the best as she begins writing a new chapter in her television news journey.
