Tegna Losing a Good One in DC

When FTVLive was in Orlando for IRE, we ran into WUSA Reporter Andrea McCarren. 

McCarren wasn't hard to spot, she was the only one there with a dog. The dog, named Nigel is being trained as a service dog by McCarren and then will be given to a Veteran that will need Nigel's services. 

McCarren and I had a great conversation and you could see how passionate she was for her job and also helping Vets. 

Well, now McCarren has decided to leave WUSA and TV news altogether and go help the Vets full time.  

She is joining PenFed Credit Union as the Chief Content Officer for PenFed Digital. Her job will be to highlight the inspiring work of Veterans, active duty service members and military families.

She begins her new gig in January.
