REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Jana Shortal Biography

There’s an unofficial dress code for women in local news: form-fitting dresses, smooth hair, sleek makeup. As a green reporter, Jana Shortal thought looking the part was the only route to landing the stories she desperately wanted to tell. For 15 years, she felt like she wore a costume to work. She maxed out credits cards in order to achieve the look, but it wasn’t the only facade she put up. With the help and friendship of hairstylist Kim Erickson, Jana found the way to her own style—and eventually her own show. Today, Jana hosts "Breaking the News" on Minneapolis’s KARE 11, and she’s garnered attention around the country for bringing her true self and style to the airwaves.

On her decision to be her true self on television, Jana said, "We all know the heartbreaking stories about what happens in the LGBTQ community to kids figuring out where you belong. And I will be damned if I am not the person that they need me to be to get them to that point where they see themselves and say, 'Hell yeah.'"

She was recently featured on CNN's Great Big Story, where she discussed finding her own identity, both in her on-air style and through coming out.
