From 2011-2013, Jenna was a music journalist with Examiner.com. She interviewed local, national, and international artists with particular focus on the Wisconsin Music Industry. Further, Jenna explored topics in the music industry ranging from politics to music therapy and more. She was consistently in the Top 10 Local Writers and Top 200 Entertainment Writers for Examiner throughout her time there.
Unfortunately, Examiner.com is no more. In the summer of 2016, it was completely removed from the interwebs by the company that owns it. Jenna's goal is to start adding some of her articles and interviews to her website as time allows.
"Warm thanks to Jenna Cornell at the Examiner.com for the nice write up about my latest Studio H. Sessions."
Rob Anthony, Singer-songwriter

"I just finished up an interview with Jenna Cornell who is a wonderful music journalist for The Examiner ~ we were talking about Songs For Sandy Hook, how it all came together, the funds we've raised so far (over $2,100), and the benefit concert scheduled for March 2nd at The Talking Stick in Venice ~ performer line up to be announced in the next few days!"
Manda Mosher, Singer-songwriter
Virtual Music Cafe
After, two successful years with Examiner.com, Jenna decided to start her own music blog called Virtual Music Cafe. This blog focused on music as an art and tackled a variety of topics and interviews. The blog is still available and the Facebook page is still live. You might even catch Jenna putting some of her latest artist interviews and music writing on there.
