"CHICAGO! It's my kind of town!"
Felicia finds it an honor to be home! The south side native has worked all over the country and now she’ll be co-hosting the hottest morning show in Chicago, “The Jam” on WCIU, The U Monday-Friday 6-8am.
This TV personality’s career started as an anchor/reporter for the ABC and NBC affiliates in Joplin, Missouri. She was first on the scene for a number of violent tornadoes, providing real-time, life-saving information to those in need. Living in the Midwest, she learned the strength of small town America and how communities bind together in their time of need.
Felicia then found herself at the FOX affiliate in Charlotte, North Carolina where she did it all! While in the Queen City, she reported on the tense protests of 2016 after the police shooting death of Keith Scott garnered national attention. As a breaking news reporter, she provided live hits for FOX News Channel and other FOX affiliates across the nation. Co-hosting a four hour morning show, she interviewed a number of celebrities, sitting down with big names like Tyler Perry, Morris Chestnut, Kid N’ Play, Anthony Hamilton, CeeLo Green, and many others.
Havana, Cuba is her favorite place reporting has taken her. In 2012, Felicia served as production assistant for a documentary being produced on the 100th Anniversary of the Afro-Cuban Race War of 1912. She also worked on-air to produce and report a lifestyle segment centered on an exiled Afro-Cuban-American.
She is a self-proclaimed dog whisperer who loves traveling internationally, dance, sci-fi movies and learning new languages! In her spare time, you can find her eating at a restaurant or mentoring youth in the community.
Felicia grew up on Chicago’s south side. She attended Amelia Earhart Elementary and Morgan Park High School. She credits her success to her mother’s role in encouraging a faith-based relationship. She grew up in the church, attending Christ Universal Temple. Felicia is a big supporter of HBCU’s. She graduated summa cum laude from North Carolina A&T State University. She is also an active member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
