Mary Cummings-Jordan

Mary Cummings-Jordan has been on air in Philadelphia for longer than she cares to remember (enjoying it all!) From WIP (before its all-sports format) to anchoring what was then WCAU’s morning radio news show, she decided to try the TV side of things, working as a reporter for NJN news, and then hosting a live call-in show at New Jersey’s public TV station for five years. But radio’s always been her favorite medium, and she’s been comfortably ensconced in the Saturday morning anchor chair for 10 years now, and also jumps in on occasion to give the other hosts a break. Mary also likes to get out of the studio, and hit the south Jersey highways in search of great stories for Newsworks Tonight, and  Morning Edition. Originally from New York, she went to Boston University. She’s been happily married countless years, is in the process of launching her teens, loves animals (hates fur balls) and is practicing her rusty ping-pong skills so she can one day beat Don Henry.
