About the Event
The “Delco Duo” began as a weekly podcast on phl17.com but due to the overwhelming popularity of the series it’s now a part of the station’s Saturday night lineup. The show is an up-close-and-personal look at Monica and Jenna as they give advice on life, love, relationships, and real-world problems submitted by viewers. The result is hilarity.
Jenna Meissner joined the PHL17 Morning News team in May 2015. Working as an intern and later a production assistant, Jenna is now the morning traffic anchor.
A local girl through and through, Jenna was born and raised in Media, Pa. She attended the Academy of Notre Dame in Villanova for high school and went on to graduate Summa Cum Laude from Temple University’s Lew Klein College of Media & Communication where she studied journalism with a specialization in broadcast.
During her time at Temple, Jenna received several broadcast awards and was inducted into the National Journalism Honors Society, Kappa Tau Alpha.
In addition to appearing on air every morning from 5 to 9 a.m., Jenna also does a lot of work behind the scenes like editing visuals and audio, producing news packages, and writing for the morning broadcast.
When Jenna’s not working, you can find her out and about exploring all of the new hot spots in Philadelphia or spending time with her growing family.
Monica Cryan joined the PHL17 team in October of 2018. She is very excited to forecast for her family and friends in Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley. She grew up in “Everybody’s Hometown,” Media, Pa., and currently resides in Ardmore. She attended Waldron Mercy and Merion Mercy Academy in Lower Merion through 12th grade and rowed on the Schuylkill River for her High School crew team.
Monica earned her Meteorology degree from Penn State University and is a proud Nittany Lion. During her time in college, Monica was a part of Campus Weather Service, Penn State Network TV, THON, and Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority. After graduation, Monica moved around the country as a meteorologist for stations in Texas, Alabama, Connecticut, and Colorado. It was during that time she earned the prestigious Certified Broadcast Meteorologist Seal from the American Meteorological Society.
If she could be anywhere, it would be down the shore with her family and friends. She loves sitting by the bay in Avalon, walking the boards in Ocean City, eating and shopping in Atlantic City, and having a drink in Somers Point. When the weather changes, Monica also enjoys skiing in the Poconos or exploring the many Italian BYOs in the city.
Her favorite cheesesteak is from Jim’s, but if you ask her, Philly’s best sandwich is roast pork with sharp provolone, broccoli rabe, and horseradish from DiNic’s. She loves upside down pies from Sam’s in Ardmore and Pica’s in Upper Darby.
