Pat Toddy brings a wealth of newspaper and television experience to the anchor desk at KYW Newsradio.
Toddy spent six years at Fox Philadelphia, where she was associate producer for the Ten O’Clock News and host of an educational feature for children called “Your World.”
Before that, Toddy worked at The County Press, a Delaware County newspaper, covering criminal cases, school board issues, politics, and sports.
Toddy thrives in breaking-news situations. She says a high point for her was anchoring the night the miners were successfully rescued from a flooded shaft in western Pennsylvania — “a story with a happy-ending,” she says.
Toddy has covered dozens of major stories during her career, including Hurricane Floyd, Mayor Street’s election, and the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia, where she produced live-shots from the convention floor.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in speech communication at West Chester University, and is the proud mother of three children — “four if you want to count Codie,” her golden retriever.
She is currently working to develop a non-profit program called “Wish for a Dish,” which would provide meals for families who are coping with a medical crisis.
