Kumasi Aaron

If you ever need to be told to leave animals in the wild alone, then our Kumasi is the lady for you! Do you really need a selfie with that bison? No. The answer is always no!

She grew up in Florida and studied accounting at Florida A&M University. But after a summer internship that left her stuck behind a desk all day, she knew she had to find something that allowed her to be creative, meet interesting people, and be out and about. Journalism was it! 

When she graduated with her accounting degree, she couldn't get a job in TV News. So she got a post graduate internship at ABC News, which led to behind the scenes work at WABC and NBC Nightly News. It was the best training she could have had, and where she really developed my passion to tell compelling and impactful stories. 

Her first job on air was as an Anchor/Reporter in Fayetteville, Arkansas. She then headed back to her home state of Florida as an Anchor/Reporter in Jacksonville, where she started to wear her natural hair on air for the first time! She felt so good to be her authentic self, and she realized part of her work would be encouraging others by example to do the same.

Next, she headed west to Denver where she worked as a National Correspondent and Anchor with The E.W. Scripps Company. The role took her all across the country covering stories like Hurricane Irma, the presidential inauguration, and the Ghost Ship Fire in Oakland. While she really enjoyed her national assignments, she loves building relationships in communities throughout the Bay Area and telling the stories of the people she meets.

You'll likely find her somewhere outside, by the water and in the sun! She love all things nature, live music and good food. She thinks the Bay Area is the perfect place!
