Madison Tromler is the weekday 6 p.m. co-anchor and a multi-skilled reporter for 21 News.
She writes, shoots, and edits packaged reports each day and then delivers top headlines at the anchor desk alongside Derek Steyer.
In less than a year, Madison has had incredible opportunities at WFMJ. Her most memorable is interviewing President-Elect Joe Biden exclusively one-on-one at a train station in Alliance, holding him accountable for the Mahoning Valley's important issues. She also covered a visit from Vice President Mike Pence as he unveiled America's first all-electric pickup truck at Lordstown Motors.
She is a passionate journalist with big dreams and knew that her passion for writing would lead her to a career in television news since she was very young.
Madison graduated from Kent State University in May 2020 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. She was born and raised in Lorain County, just west of Cleveland, Ohio.
She spent most of her college career working for NBC affiliate WKYC 3News in Cleveland, running the assignment desk and working in the field with reporters and photographers. In August 2019, the news director sent her to cover a mass shooting in Dayton, where she contributed to live broadcasts on the scene.
Throughout college, Madison served as an anchor, reporter, and producer for TV2, Kent State's award-winning, student-led television station. Among her favorite memories is covering the Ohio Governor's race party live in Columbus.
Madison has experience in all facets of journalism, including an internship at the Chronicle-Telegram Newspaper in Elyria, Ohio, and oWOW, an online Cleveland radio station.
When Madison isn't chasing a story, she loves being around her friends and family, eating seafood, and making people laugh.
