Kilmeny Duchardt Joins Newsmax As Congressional Correspondent
Newsmax today announced veteran journalist Kilmeny Duchardt has been named congressional correspondent for the network.
She is the latest journalist to join the cable network. Last week Newsmax announced that James Rosen will serve as the network’s chief White House correspondent.
Duchardt brings to the job more than 15 years of media experience with The Associated Press, Reuters and most recently as an anchor with Turkish TV’s TRT World.
Duchardt has spent the last three years anchoring “Turkish TV’s TRT World” US primetime news bulletins out of Washington, covering the U.S. election, Congress, the White House and other major global news events.
She has led panels and hosted specials on the presidential debates, State of the Union, outbreak of the novel coronavirus and has reported from Texas and Mexico on the immigration crisis along America’s southern border.
“Trust isn’t given, it’s earned,” she said. “I take great pride in earning the trust of my viewers. I look forward to gaining the respect of our diverse audience at Newsmax and being a source they can count on.”
The Cal State-Fullerton grad’s experience also includes foreign assignments for TRT World, including as an Istanbul-based correspondent covering the Syrian civil war, the resulting refugee crisis, ISIS terror attacks, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
She returned to the United States in 2016 to cover the Trump campaign, where she forecast the president’s win in a special series on voters in the Rust Belt. Duchardt also has worked for CNN, Fox Sports and Al-Jazeera.
