Anjali Hemphill joined the “Taking Action, Getting Results” team in March 2010. You can catch her reporting live early in the morning on NewsChannel 3 This Morning and WGNT.
Anjali has spent most of her life in Fairfax County, Virginia. She graduated from East Carolina University (Go Pirates!) in Greenville, NC with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science.
Before moving to Hampton Roads, Anjali was a radio news reporter for WPTF 680 AM in Raleigh, NC. She made the transition to local TV news after attending a Multimedia Journalism course at the New York Film Academy in New York City during the summer of 2009.
Anjali’s love for journalism most likely stems from her travels around the world. She spent 5 years growing up in Niger and Rwanda in Africa; until her family was forced to leave Rwanda during the 1994 civil war. Some other amazing places she has been lucky enough to go are Germany, Italy, France, India, Japan and Singapore.
Anjali is an active member of the South Asian American Journalists Association. She is involved with the Indian American community and the Special Olympics in Hampton Roads. When she’s not reporting, she enjoys hanging with her dog Mango, traveling, making jewelry, live music, yoga and spending time with family and friends.
Anjali has met some incredible people covering stories in Hampton Roads. Moving to the area has given her a greater appreciation for the water, the weather and the service men and women of the United States.
