Cheddar hires two new anchors
Cheddar TV, which bills itself as television business news for the millennials, has hired two new anchors.
J.D. Durkin, who was at Mediaite as the editorial producer for video and live broadcast, has been hired as an anchor.
During his time at Mediate, Durkin wrote daily columns covering the 2016 election, late night comedy, and trending news. Durkin has appeared on Cheddar many times as a guest.
In his spare time, Durkin contributes as a panelist and guest host to the political comedy show Electoral Dysfunction in New York. He graduated with a B.A. in English and Irish studies from Villanova University.
Baker Machado is becoming an anchor after two months of freelancing.
Machado spent five years as a reporter for E! News in Los Angeles. He’s covered everything from Michael Jackson’s involuntary manslaughter trial to Super Bowl 50 to countless red carpet events for the Grammys, Emmys, and Oscars and has interviewed more A-List celebrities than he can count.
Machado holds a masters degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Colorado at Boulder
