who is karla ?
Karla Redditte is an award-winning news anchor/reporter/host who currently works as a morning news anchor for Spectrum News in Charlotte, North Carolina. However, over the years, you may have seen her on television in various markets throughout the South, including Richmond, Virginia, Huntsville, Alabama, Savannah, Georgia, and Biloxi, Mississippi.
She is a consummate media professional whose experience also includes radio, public relations, print, blogging, digital content writing, travel writing, videography, photography, and editing.
Karla is a true storyteller with an ability to connect with any audience. Throughout her 19 year career, she has covered several major stories, including Hurricane Katrina, the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, and the unveiling of Kehinde Wiley's "Rumors of War" in New York's Times Square, which was created in response to the Confederate monuments throughout the nation. No matter the subject, viewers depend on Karla for well-researched, trustworthy, and, at times, entertaining reports.
Part of Karla’s connection with the audience can be attributed to her work within the community. She is a regular volunteer and speaker, and has been for more than 18 years. She has earned numerous volunteerism awards, and was most recently recognized within the Richmond area as a Community STAR (Service Transcending Around Richmond).
Karla is a native of Memphis, Tennessee. When she is not working, she travels the world (and then blogs about it). Her most recent stops include Peru, Panama, Jamaica, South Africa, Cuba, Brazil, Haiti, India, and Senegal.
She is a proud member of the National Association of Black Journalists, the Society of Professional Journalists, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.
