Before coming to Central Pennsylvania, Colleen interned as a social media reporter at WCAU in Philadelphia and worked in Washington, D.C. on Capitol Hill.

Colleen realized her love of journalism while studying at Villanova University. There, she had the opportunity of a lifetime to travel to Rome and work for Vatican Radio for a semester. That experience solidified her decision to become a journalist.

Colleen also worked as Editor in Chief of Villanova’s Communication Alumni Newsletter for her junior and senior years. She became a member of Lambda Pi Eta, the National Communication Honors Society, her junior year.

Colleen is beyond thrilled to get out and meet people in the community. If you want to say hi or have a story to tell, connect with her on Facebook (@ColleenKnudsenTV) or email
