Toast of the Town: Cindy Vero

Wake up New Jersey! It’s time to get the inside scoop on 103.5 KTU‘s very own Cindy Vero.

Cindy is born and raised a Jersey Girl and proud of it!  The Mornings with Cubby and Cindy” co-host’s contagious and vivacious personality is as real as it gets, and it’s on display in this special “Toast for the Town” segment.

HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino got to experience the perfect day in Cindy’s cozy town of Hawthorne.  Cindy took us to Well Read, a bookstore that is not only a hot spot for avid readers, but highlights the works of local authors.

Giving us more of a reason to love this quaint town is the Cuban Flavor Café, one of Cindy’s favorite Hawthorne haunts. Cindy and Lisa Marie dined on the restaurant’s signature dishes and sipped sangria as they talked about Cindy’s rise to the top!

We finished off the segment walking Cindy’s three rescue dogs at one of Hawthorne’s beautiful parks.  While there, we learned more about Cindy’s big heart. She has made countless appearances and been a part of many charitable events in between training three rescue dogs to call her own. She works especially close with the Lustgarten Foundation, raising awareness for pancreatic cancer. To top it all off, Cindy hosts a show Sunday mornings at 6 called “KTU Cares”, where she interviews local celebrities and hometown heroes who are giving back to their communities.

This woman does it all and she kicks butt at everything she does, which is exactly how every Jersey Girl does it!

Live Hard, Work Hard, Play Hard.
