Former Longtime WNBC Anchor Carol Jenkins Says TV News Industry Going ‘Right Direction’ for Women, Blacks
Carol Jenkins was a top-notch broadcast journalist for several decades in New York. She is most remembered for her nearly quarter-century at WNBC as an anchor and reporter.
Since leaving the business a decade ago, Jenkins wrote a book and started formulating a second one.
“I thought I was going to have this grand producing career,” Jenkins admits. “My timing wasn’t [good]. I started trying to do documentaries just as reality television [took off].”
But her pet project was being a founding president of the Women’s Media Center.
Always an advocate for more women in newsrooms, Jenkins had the perfect forum for her cause.
