Cleo Greene joined the WBOC/Fox21 news team in November 2011 as a videojournalist. She comes to us with a humble spirit from the south. There she worked as a multimedia journalist at WRDW CBS News12 in North Augusta, S.C.
Cleo's family is from the West Indies. Her natural affinity to the islands led her to St. Croix, US Virgin Islands where she worked as a general assignment reporter for WTJX PBS Channel 12. There she covered hard hitting feature stories from homelessness in paradise, territorial gang awareness to candid interviews with USVI Gov. John P. deJongh Jr.
Cleo got her first gig in the television business at the age of 16 as a cooking show host for LDTV in her hometown of Mount Laurel, N.J. It was her grandmother who told her she should become a television news reporter. Ever since then Cleo made it her mission to fulfill that vision, which would soon become her own.
She graduated from Rowan University in 2008, where she earned a B.A. in broadcast journalism and radio, television and film. Her most memorable college days stem from hosting and producing her own campus talk show called "On the Couch."
Cleo believes the best experience comes from interning. She was an investigative unit intern for WCAU NBC 10 in Philadelphia. She learned the ins and outs of the entertainment and fashion industry at Cosmogirl Magazine in Manhattan. Cleo then found herself back in the newsroom as an apprentice reporter for WGMT NBC 40 in Linwood, N.J.
Cleo is happy to be back on the east coast and close to the beach. What's going on in your neck of the woods? She wants to hear from you. Send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
