Cyd Hoskinson

Reporter / Host, "All Things Considered"

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 trial 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 former President Jimmy Carter, Coretta Scott King, Hosea Williams, Andrew Young, newspaper columnist Sydney J. Harris, Joan Fontaine and celebrity chef 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.
