WNCN's Genardo joining McCrory Administration

Posted: Updated:

WNCN political reporter Kim Genardo is joining the McCrory Administration as Director of Communications.

Genardo has focused on politics at WNCN, at both the state and national levels, in her 14 years at the station. She has a knack for explaining how policies impact viewers and is known for being scrupulously fair in her reporting, always making sure she gives all side a fair hearing.

"She has made a mark in this community by making it her business to know the Legislature inside and out," News Director Andrea Parquet-Taylor said Friday. "We wish Kim well in her new endeavor."

Genardo is also familiar to WNCN weekend viewers because she anchored those newscasts.

Prior to joining WNCN, Genardo worked at WGHP. She is a graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.

She will start with the McCrory Administration Wednesday.

"Kim Genardo is a very talented professional who has a wealth of experience in media and covering state government," McCrory said in a statement. "We are thrilled to have her as part of our team."
