Rebecca Cardenas is a Murrow-award winning journalist, happily joining the WSMV4 team in September 2017 after two years reporting for WSAW-TV in Wausau, WI.
Rebecca is thrilled to make her way back south - she grew up in Tampa, FL, earning degrees in communications and French at Florida State University. While in school, she spent a summer abroad at the Catholic University of Paris, adding a third language to her belt - she is fluent in Portuguese as well.
WSAW was her first job out of school, where her coverage ranged from snowstorms, to city government, to a nationally-reported high school prom shooting.
Her examination into the state of homelessness in north central Wisconsin schools was awarded a regional Edward R. Murrow, and she was a finalist in the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association’s ‘Best Live On-Scene Reporting’ category.
Outside of the newsroom, Rebecca likes to run, read and explore Nashville.
