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 300 — the maximum score possible by bowling 12 strikes in a row!

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!
