Kcrw Staff/Producer

Jennifer Wolfe is a Peabody Award-winning journalist and passionate storyteller. She has an innate curiosity about people and the world around her.

She spent the early part of her career as a radio broadcaster in the southern US and transitioned to producing local news for television.

Shortly thereafter, she was recruited by CNN Headline News in Atlanta. Jennifer's career at CNN covered 15 years of breaking news, live TV production, feature writing and producing pieces. She moved to Los Angeles in 2004 to help oversee CNN's Entertainment Unit, managing a bi-coastal staff of producers, editors and photographers. Jennifer handled CNN's Academy Award, Golden Globe and Grammy award show coverage as well as major entertainment stories including the death of Michael Jackson.

KCRW is a return to Jennifer's radio roots and seemed like a natural fit as it, like coffee, was part of her daily morning routine.
