After appearing for several years as a recurring guest on The Valley Today, Janet took over as it’s host in May 2016. As a self-proclaimed life-long student, Janet’s favorite thing about hosting the show is learning something new every single day from her guests. Her enthusiasm and curiosity make her a natural interviewer that immediately puts guests at ease making for an interesting and entertaining conversation.

If you could give yourself any title (made up or real) at work – what would it be?  A former colleague called me the “Daytime Diva” and I have to say, it’s pretty close to the truth.

What are your favorite sports teams?  Baltimore Ravens, Baltimore Orioles, Washington Nationals

What is your social media network of choice?  I’m active on most of them because of my job, but my personal favorite is Twitter.
