You can catch Bianca
anchoring the 6 o'clock p.m. and 11 o'clock p.m. newscasts with Kurt Williams during the work week.
Bianca joined NewsChannel 3 in July 2003.
A Navy wife, new to Hampton Roads, she took a position as an Associate Producer to get her foot in the door.
Two months after first walking into the newsroom in Norfolk, she
hit the air as the morning traffic reporter.
Bianca's work in the traffic center changed the way WTKR did traffic.
Instead of doing everything from the studio, she
went on location when the job required it.
Instead of sitting in the studio during Hurricane Isabel, she
was out in the elements at our area bridge tunnels, bringing viewers the story right from the scene.
While reporting traffic was great for honing her
live reporting skills, Bianca
was a news junkie at heart and was anxious to get out and spend more time in the field and put her
journalism skills to work.
In January 2005, Bianca
hit the street and made the jump to full-time reporter.
Not much later she joined the NewsChannel 3 morning team as co-anchor.
Before coming to WTKR, Bianca was a producer at KITV4 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
was responsible for writing, editing, even punching/directing her
morning newscasts airing on the ABC affiliate and CNN Headline News
On top of her
producing responsibilities, she
served as the station voice and interviewed and told the stories of families for the Kapiolani Children's Hospital and Children's Miracle Network
husband to Hawaii after studying journalism and U.S military history at Penn State University
and working a year as a field producer at the NBC affiliate in Washington, DC.
The encouragement she
received as a fresh faced kid in television has stuck with her
for the past eleven years.
The reporting experiences there solidified her
commitment to telling stories.
It was not the first time Bianca worked with NBC4.
In fact, she
start in the business at that station at the age of 14 as a Teen TV reporter.
The work done by the Teen TV team for a special focusing on Teen Violence in 1994 earned the station a large amount of recognition and accolades.
was even featured in the station's 50th Anniversary celebration.
not anchoring or working on her
feature, "Do My Military Job," Bianca
free time with her
husband and their two children.
Lucas and Sophia keep her
busy with soccer and lots of quality family fun!!
is also a self proclaimed CrossFit addict!
