Jana Shortal

Reporter and co-anchor, 'Breaking the News,' KARE 11

A full baker's dozen. That’s how many years Jana has worked as a reporter for KARE 11 news here in Minneapolis -– it is also the same amount of time she has spent wondering if she could ever really be that much needed addition to the now-defunct Destiny’s Child. But she’s for sure gonna name her first child Destiny, just to get remotely close to that brand. Other tidbits. She is from a town you’ve never heard of, but it’s a 40-minute drive from St. Louis. She once sold her 10-year anniversary gift from KARE 11 to an ex so she could buy a pair of Air Jordan’s. And her dog is named Vivian Ward. And yes, that Vivian Ward. She and Vivan heart Minneapolis so hard they sometimes cry about it when they take their morning poop walk.
