Edward Cardenas is a communicator who has worked on both sides of the notebook throughout Metro Detroit. Edward joined The Detroit News after graduating from Grand Valley State University. At The News he covered a variety of stories including high-profile court cases, environmental issues affecting Lake St. Clair, major sporting events including the Super Bowl and military stories from Selfridge Air National Guard Base – including a supersonic flight on an F-16.
