Rachael Cardin joins the WJZ as an Anchor/Reporter, co-hosting the Saturday morning show and taking her talents out into the field a few weekdays.

Rachael joins us from the neighboring state of Virginia where she was one of the lead reporters at WTKR News 3, most recently covering the Virginia Beach Municipal Center mass shooting and Hurricanes Florence and Matthew.

Previously working in North Carolina and West Virginia as a news reporter, Rachael is excited to be inching her way up the coastline, closer to her family and friends in Massachusetts.

A proud Westfield State University Alumni; Rachael ran Cross Country and Track & Field for the University before racing for a short time with a New Balance team before leaving the area to chase the TV news dream.

Rachael enjoys exploring her new city by running the streets near the waterfront. She LOVES a good restaurant or bar, coupled with a walk through town. Being a beach bum for the last few years, Rachael plans to make as many trips to the Chesapeake Bay as she can, because who doesn’t love a good crab cake?
