I'm a Dayton native and graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. in Mass Communications from Wright State University. I started my career at Channel 22 working as an assignment editor, producer and reporter. I moved to Memphis, Tennessee, working as a news and sports reporter/anchor.
I'm proud of my "exclusives" with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and former South African President Nelson Mandela. I interviewed many other political leaders: Colin Powell, former President Jimmy Carter, former first lady Barbara Bush, John Kerry, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Jesse Jackson and others. While in Memphis I took a personal tour on Air Force One and Air Force Two.
I have interviewed many athletes and entertainers, including Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Walter Payton, Andre Agassi, legendary Cowboys coach Tom Landry, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Cowboys players Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, "Too Tall" Jones and Jay Novacek, members of The Big Red Machine, Dave Chappell, Susan Sarandon, Tony Bennett, Billy Ray Cyrus, B.B. King, Earl Woods (Tiger's dad), John Travolta, Joaquin Phoenix, Angela Bassett, Fabio, Bernie Mac, Harry Belafonte and many more.
In Memphis, I reported on the Jonesboro, Arkansas, school shootings and covered from beginning to end the West Memphis murders. That case made national news and became an HBO documentary. I appeared on the Sally Jesse Raphael talk show discussing a Memphis story that made national news.
In 2001, I returned home and rejoined ABC 22/FOX 45. Ive covered everything from breaking news to sports to community events. I helped viewers with consumers problems with my weekly segment "Help Me Rhonda" and with my weekly segment "Eat at Your Own Risk," which spotlighted local restaurants.
I'm a proud Daytonian. I love working in my hometown and being around family. I love sports, the arts, music, festivals, live concerts and other fun things in the Miami Valley.
I'm a member of the Greater Dayton Association of Black Journalists and very active in the Miami Valley. I serve as mistress of ceremonies for many events and participate in an annual journalism "boot camp" teaching high school and college students about broadcast journalism. I love playing tennis, golf, jogging, exercising and watching sports, especially football. I'm the #1 Dallas Cowboys fan.
You can catch my reports weekdays on ABC 22 Good Morning and FOX 45 In the Morning.
