Social Media

Being in the entertainment field, Corona is naturally active on social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, and uses her accounts to communicate with her fans as well as to promote her work and spread the word about it. Corona’s fans are loyal and supportive and they often like, share and retweet her content. She is followed by over 9,000 people on Twitter and some of her latest tweets include one reading “No need to smash a fan’s phone! Now #Offset is facing felony charges for the incident inside a @Target in Sandy Springs. @wsbtv at 5p”


Wendy is also active on Instagram and often shares photos from her private life on that social network. Some of her latest posts include a photo of herself holding the book entitled “Know Your Value”. She went on to add the caption reading “Wow! A must read for any woman navigating her way through career and life, whether you’re in TV or not! Call the timing perfect, but I really connected with this and wanted to share. Thank you @mikabrzezinski for pouring your wisdom out on these pages. It’s a perfect Women’s HERstory Month read.” In addition to that, the journalist, who is also a feminist, shared a photo of herself and her friends enjoying a day at the beach. In early 2019, she shared a selfie taken while she was in Mexico, and her fans seem to have loved it as they went on to leave numerous sweet messages complimenting Wendy, with one fan writing “You are always so beautiful love your smile. And may God bless you with a great time and a safe trip back home”.

Relationship Status. Is She Married Now?

Wendy prefers keeping some information behind the closed door and is secretive about some parts of her privacy. She is reportedly married to a man named Kenneth, and they have a son, Kenneth IV, and a daughter whose name she hasn’t disclosed. The anchor shared a photo of her children adding that she feels lucky to be their mom.


Prior to rising to fame and moving to Atlanta, Wendy worked at WFAA, based in Dallas and served as an evening anchor at Local 10 in Miami.

She has also witnessed numerous important news events – in 2000, during the presidential elections, Corona was working in Florida, which was an important place because of alleged connections between Florida and the subsequent 9/11 attack. During her time there, she made reports regarding hurricanes. Overall, being a hardworking woman has allowed Corona to gain more exposure in the media while making a name for herself in journalism.
