Cyd Hoskinson began working at WJCT on Valentine’s Day 2011.  Among her many accomplishments, she hosted and produced a children’s radio show called BALLOONS; covered the Ted Bundy trail and, later, the Atlanta child murder trials; co-wrote, researched and produced FLYERS OF FORTUNE, a radio documentary about an American pilot who fought in the Spanish Civil War; co-produced a storytelling festival, TELLING TALES, at the Carter Center in Atlanta; interviewed President Jimmy Carter, Coretta Scott King, Hosea Williams, Andrew Young, newspaper columnist Sydney J. Harris, Joan Fontaine and Emeril Lagasse.

Cyd is also a big fan of modern audio drama and, before coming to Jacksonville, she served on the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company’s Board of Directors.

She has a degree in elementary education from Florida State University. Everything else she’s picked up along the way.
