WAMU 88.5 welcomes Jessica Jordan as midday host

WAMU 88.5 recently welcomed Jessica Jordan as the station’s new midday host. Jordan’s first day in her new on-air role was Oct. 30. She assumed the host role after the departure of veteran announcer Bill Redlin, whose last day on air was Aug. 31.

"Many thousands of our listeners tune in for Diane, stay for Kojo, and listen to the magazine shows through the afternoon,” said Mark McDonald, WAMU 88.5 Programming Director. “As our midday host, Jessica Jordan will be their friendly guide to everything that's happening and coming up. She has a strong news sense and will deliver all the important news we need to know quickly and accurately."

Jordan comes to WAMU 88.5 from International TV Services (ITVS), where she worked as a live radio host and interviewer, delivering breaking news and holding discussions on international, national and regional stories.

Her voice is a familiar one to WAMU 88.5 listeners; prior to her stint at ITVS, Jordan reported for WAMU 88.5 News from 2010-2011. She launched her career in television news in Florida in 2005, and has appeared on The Florida Channel, YouUniversityTV.com, and SNN Local News Six. She holds a degree in journalism from the University of Central Florida.
