Profile: Veronica De La Cruz

Suggestion by Cliff from Rockland.


  1. I'm assuming her mom is not Jewish?

  2. If we're doing Jews on the Today show, you might want to do Jenna Wolfe, who is on the weekend edition.

  3. That's what I thought she looked Asian.....same background as Phoebe Cates.

  4. She recently started as a news anchor here in the SF Bay Area. I was curious so I started looking around online:

    Her mom is Chinese-Flipino and her dad comes from a French/German Jewish family. The father is from South America, which is where they got the name "De La Cruz", having changed it from the original German Schertz.

    I gotta think with the family name meaning "of the cross", they weren't all that Jewish? Maybe just ancestrally?
