About

Welcome to my webpage. I’m Nneka (pronounced Nay-Ka).  I am an anchor/reporter/ multi-media journalist. I am currently a reporter at WTNH-TV, the ABC station in New Haven, Connecticut. Previously, I was an anchor/reporter in Providence, RI at WPRI. While I was there, I shot and edited two (that’s right, two) stories daily..————

Prior to working in Rhode Island, I worked as a reporter in Syracuse, NY for two years where I covered, you guessed it, lots of snow! Before Syracuse, I wrote and produced health news briefs for Black Entertainment Television as part of the Kaiser Family Foundation’s fellowships in health reporting. I have also had internships with NY1 News in New York City and ABC’s World News.

I am a graduate of Princeton University where I earned a degree in Sociology and African-American Studies. I also took numerous courses in Politics, African Studies, and Spanish, including a summer semester at the Universidad de León, Spain. The year after graduating from Princeton, I earned my master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism where I earned the school’s award for local reporting. I also received thesis honors for a documentary I co-produced following three young men from Brooklyn as they competed in a youth boxing tournament.

My interest in journalism began at a very young age when my brother would tape me interviewing my parents and other siblings around the house. I grew up in southeastern Pennsylvania (go Eagles!), where I attended Montgomery School in Chester Springs and co-founded “The Cool School Newspaper.” I later attended Westtown School, a Quaker co-educational college preparatory school, where I played three sports, I was elected Student Body President and was editor-in-chief of our newspaper, “The Brown and White.”

I enjoy running, traveling, trying new foods and spending time with friends and family. I am the the proud oldest sister of six siblings. My parents are immigrants from Nigeria who came to the US with nothing and have truly achieved the American Dream. It is from my parents that I learned anything is possible.
