Natalie Wilson is joining the FOX8 news team as an anchor and reporter for the new 4pm newscast.

A native of Athens, Georgia, Natalie is thrilled to call the Piedmont “home.” She has relatives in Greensboro and Winston-Salem.

She comes to FOX8 from Charlottesville, Virginia where she was a general assignment reporter and weekend morning anchor. Prior to that, she worked at CTV News in Largo, Maryland and WRC-TV in Washington, D.C., where she got her start as a production assistant and field producer.

Natalie’s work has been recognized by the Hearst Journalism Awards, White House Correspondents’ Association, and the National Black Programming Consortium.

Natalie is a proud alumna of Howard University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism. She earned a Master of Arts in Communication from Johns Hopkins University.

When Natalie isn’t working, you will most likely find her at a bowling alley! She grew up participating in leagues and tournaments and still practices as often as she can. Her highest game is a 279, but she is still working toward that 300!

Natalie says the best thing about her job is meeting new people. Feel free to send her an e-mail, or if you see her around, be sure to say hi!

Kumar says a patient’s history is a good indicator […]

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — If you’re battling a bout of dry skin, the problem may be less about the winter chill and more about your hygiene habits. “Dryness of the skin is caused by not having enough moisture in the skin, so people think well I need more water, more bathing, and sometimes that can make things worse,” Dr. Steven Feldman, professor of dermatology at Wake Forest Baptist Health, said. Excessive hand washing or exposing your hands to harsh soaps can […]

    GREENSBORO, N.C. — Veteran Tonya Miller didn’t have much after being medically discharged from the Army. “I was only given 30 percent disability and I had to live off that,” she said.
