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.
Edward left the news and worked on the opposite side of the notebook by working as communications director for Congresswoman Candice Miller and press secretary for Detroit Mayor Dave Bing.
He returned to the writing side of journalism to help launch the hyper-local Patch network in Michigan. Edward was the founding editor for St. Clair Shores Patch and covered a variety of local, regional and national stories including the final space shuttle launch where he provided localized stories for Patch sites nationwide.
Edward joined WWJ Newsradio 950 and CBS Detroit in 2014, where he covers technology, development and new economy stories.
In his free time, Edward enjoys spending time with his family, taking in Detroit Tigers games and trying to put in a few miles of running when his schedule permits.
