Hello! My name is Jordan Verdadeiro.
I’m a Jersey girl originally so of course I love Springsteen. However, I just moved from Boca Raton, FL. My tan may be vanishing but the Florida warmth will be in my heart forever!
Fun Fact: I speak Spanish and Portuguese
Favorite Song: Africa by Toto
Favorite Hobby: Karaoke
Why am I here? I have always loved this industry, my first internship was in 2016 at ABC7 in Washington, D.C. where I had the amazing opportunity to cover election night during the Trump v. Clinton campaign.
I began anchoring in High School and that followed me through college (Lynn University!) where I began writing for the school paper. Hungry to grow my skills, I started freelancing for The Palm Beach Post, one of the biggest newspapers in south Florida and started digital story-telling.
I love doing this job because I want to share people’s stories and give them a voice. Feel free to follow me on twitter @jordyyverd on Instagram @JordanVerdadeiroTV and follow my Facebook page Jordan Verdadeiro KFYR TV!
