Richard Jordan is a reporter for News4 Today.
Jordan joined News4 in March 2012 after spending four years reporting at WSVN in his hometown of Miami. While there, he covered many stories about immigration and issues of importance to the Hispanic community. His reports on violent crime earned him national recognition as part of a CNN series highlighting the surge of illegal automatic weapons on America’s streets.
Before that, Jordan worked in Cincinnati, where he served as a bilingual anchor and reporter for the country’s only Spanish-language newscast on an English television station.
Jordan's career began in El Paso, TX, where he routinely crossed the Mexican border to report on unprotected border zones, the violent drug trade and cases of abduction and human smuggling.
Throughout his career, he has reported on politics, education issues, and the violent hurricanes and tropical storms that sometimes plague the south. He has also anchored live breaking news coverage of the 2010 rescue of trapped Chilean miners, Ted Kennedy's funeral and the swearing-in of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
The son of Cuban immigrants, Jordan is a graduate of the University of the Missouri School of Journalism. He lives in Northern Virginia.
