Madison Gardner is a Michigan native, grew up in the Lansing area and then headed to Chicago to attend DePaul University.
During her time in Chicago Madison took on seven internships while managing to graduate in just over 3 years.
Her favorite experiences were with CNN Headquarters in Atlanta and with ABC7 Chicago.
At CNN Madison was able to watch breaking news unfold right before her eyes and work alongside the international news team. Madison also loved her time at ABC7 where she interned for both the newsroom and daytime talk show “Windy City Live.” Each internship gave her further insight into the news industry and shaped her into the journalist she is today.
She loves adventure and trying new things which influences the stories she reports on for “the four”.
Outside of work you can catch Madison riding her bike, reading, watching The Bachelor, traveling, playing with dogs and exploring Northern Michigan!
