MOVING UP IN IOWA

Jodi Long, weekend anchor at WHOTV (NBC) started this week as co-host of “Today in Iowa”

Long started with the station in 2011 as a college intern.  

“I am so honored and humbled to be a part of central Iowan’s morning routine by helping them start their day informed and on the right foot,” says Long.

“The hours may be early but as my parents used to say, ‘find a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.’ I’m thrilled to begin this new chapter.”

Long calls herself an “Iowa girl” and enjoys serving our community. She has visited many central Iowa schools over the last two years honoring teachers who have earned WHO-HD’s Golden Apple award.

She has helped lead discussions about race and equality with the Des Moines Civil and Human Right’s commission and has shared her story of adoption as the keynote speaker at the Iowans for Adoption Gala.
