Chandler Parr - Journalist
Chandler Parr joined WRDE in July 2019 as a reporter and weekend anchor. Chandler was born and raised in the suburbs of Maryland, right outside of Washington, D.C, and spent her summers in Dallas, Texas where her family is from.
Chandler has always aspired to be a journalist - taking after her father who hosts his own nationally syndicated radio show. She graduated from the University of Maryland's Philip Merrill College of Journalism in May 2019, where she was a reporter and anchor for the award-winning student-run news organization, Capital News Service.
During her time at Maryland, she interned at WJLA's entertainment news department in Arlington, Virginia and was a student ambassador for Maryland's football team. She was also a four-year veteran of the University of Maryland Cheerleading program where she cheered for the football and men's basketball teams, attended national and regional appearances, and competed at national championships.
Chandler is excited to be on the team at WRDE and a part of the Delmarva community. In her free time Chandler likes to shop, travel, eat, and listen to Ariana Grande on loop.
