Jessica Cinardo joined the WMBF News team in 2012, immediately after graduating from Coastal Carolina University. Jessica got her start at WMBF News as a News Content Specialist, learning all the ins and outs of what goes on behind the scenes of a newscast. After working in production, she soon became the 5 p.m. producer, then moved on to produce the 6 & 11 p.m. newscasts, eventually working her way up to Executive Producer.
As Executive Producer, Jessica works closely with the producers of our evening newscasts, as well as our team of reporters. She also organizes the WMBF News internship program and enjoys helping college students begin to shape their broadcasting careers.
Jessica, a transplant from New Jersey, has adapted well to the southern way of life and enjoys exploring the outdoors with her husband.
Hurricane Hugo devastated the South Carolina coast 31 years ago. To educate residents on the impacts the category 4 storm had on the community, the Horry County Museum is hosting a showing of the South Carolina ETV film, Hurricane Hugo: Storm of the Century.
Horry County is moving forward with the purchase of a new License Plate Recognition System. During a Public Safety Committee meeting Tuesday morning, leaders approved the transfer of funds from another project to support the new crime-fighting tool.
