Resita Cox is excited to be reporting the news right where she grew up, in Eastern North Carolina. She was born and raised in Kinston and can't wait to get back involved in the community.
She joined NewsChannel 12 in August 2016 after graduating from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. You'll find her wearing Carolina Blue on game days! While at UNC, Resita reported for Carolina Week and Sports Xtra.
She has spent two years at our ABC affiliate in Durham, WTVD. She's also spent some time at WJLA-TV in Washington, DC.
Resita is also a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. When she isn't reporting the news, you can find her participating in community outreach and service events through her sorority, writing and performing spoken word poetry, and watching the news.
Resita believes true journalism is giving voice to the voiceless and hopes her work speaks for groups and communities that are often left out of mainstream media. She wants to hear from you! Please follow her on Twitter @resitacoxwcti or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
