Moore began her full-time employment with the station in 2007, but her experience with WCPO stretches long before then. While in high school, Moore was one of the first classes to take part in the WCPO Careers In Media program; where she shadowed different departments and produced public service announcements. During college, she interned almost every summer as an E.W. Scripps intern. During that experience, she learned almost every aspect of the news department--even earning a freelance position as web producer during her winter break.
Moore graduated cum laude from Ohio University with a bachelor in science in journalism-- with emphasis in broadcast news. While in Athens, she was very active at the local station, WOUB, where she wrote, produced and reported on TV and radio. She also served as announcer for the 2006 Homecoming Parade.
Moore is no stranger to the Queen City. She grew up in the suburb of Woodlawn, and attended Princeton High School with her younger brother. Both of her parents are from Cincinnati, so her huge extended family can easily be found throughout the Tri-State.
During her spare time, she enjoys writing, mentoring, dancing and public speaking. She is active in the National Association of Black Journalists, the Public Relations Society of America, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, and her church.
Moore was recognized for her hard work at both WCPO and within the community when she was named one of the 2009 Black and Hispanic Achievers, which is presented by the YMCA of greater Cincinnati.
Moore's motto: To whom much is given, much is required. She believes that we all are blessed with great opportunities whether big or small. Therefore, to not use them to help others is simply a waste.
