Jodi Hedes has been with the Times News since 1978 and currently works closely with many departments on a daily basis.
She started in the classified advertising department a year after graduating from Palmerton Area High School, a position she held until December 1981 when she left to have her son. She came back part-time in the department in June 1982 and moved to full-time status in August 1986. Today, Jodi is one of two smiling faces that greet people when they arrive at the Mahoning Valley office.
Jodi is married to former Times News managing sports editor, Ed Hedes, and they have one son, Jarrad, who works as a reporter in the editorial department.
When not at work, Jodi enjoys spending time with her family, especially her granddaughter.
