Joan Jones wass excited to have joined the team at WTOP!
Before coming to WTOP, Joan anchored network newscasts for the Wall Street Journal
Radio Network. She has also anchored newscasts for a host of Philadelphia radio

enjoy camping, gardening and baseball and they are active members of their church.
