BUILDING A BETTER WICHITA
Jared Cerullo is a born and bred Wichitan. Not only that, but a SOUTH Wichitan. Since the day his mother brought him home from Wesley Medical Center, Jared has lived, worked and played in Wichita. Growing up in the area of 55th Street South and Broadway, he attended Haysville schools from kindergarten until he graduated from Campus High School in 1992.
Jared attended Wichita State University for a short stint before going to work at KFDI radio in 1993. He worked in the news department at KFDI for 14 years reporting the news daily, chasing storms, reporting on Wichita traffic conditions and anchoring newscasts. If you grew up listening to KFDI when the weather turned bad, you likely heard Jared anchoring or reporting on severe weather conditions and breaking news all around Wichita.
After starting as a weekend overnight reporter while he was still a teenager, Jared worked his way up to eventually becoming the assignment manager at KFDI. In 2007, Jared accepted an offer to jump into the television market and went to work at KAKE TV, the ABC affiliate in Wichita. Jared started on the assignment desk and with hard work, he became a reporter for the evening newscasts and was anchoring on the weekends. In 2013, Jared became self-employed and currently works as a freelancer for radio news stations all over the country, working right from his home in South Wichita.
Because of Jared’s more than two decades of experience as a broadcast journalist, a number of people encouraged him to run for public office. His job for many years has been to ask vital questions on matters in order to gain as much knowledge and expertise as possible within a very short amount of time and then educate the citizens of Wichita on topics relevant to the Wichita neighborhoods and community.
In March, 2021, Jared was chosen by a majority of city council members to fill an unexpired term that is scheduled to end in
