Jenna Lane

San Francisco-based field reporter Jenna Lane has been working since 2015 to earn her place among the legends at KCBS Radio. She grew up at KGO, when it was a powerhouse of news, talk and community service.

Some of Jenna’s most memorable and award-winning breaking news stories have included the first same-sex marriages in San Francisco, the MacArthur maze collapse, Oscar Grant’s killing, the San Bruno pipeline explosion, the Asiana Airlines crash at SFO, and the sudden death of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. Jenna has drawn on her documentary background for more deeply reported stories about survivors of the North Bay and Butte County wildfires, homelessness and people who use drugs in San Francisco.

A fifth-generation Bay Area native, Jenna spent a formative decade in New England. Her time at public and commercial radio stations in Portland, Maine included coverage of the Sept. 11 terror attacks and the chance to board a moving ship by rope ladder, microphone in hand
