Najahe’s Bio

Thank you for taking the time to read my bio page. I anchor WAAY 31 news at 4, 5, 6 and 10 p.m. I joined the WAAY 31 news team in February 2018 as the morning and midday news anchor and was promoted to the evening anchor position a year later. In addition to anchoring the evening news, I also report for WAAY 31. I covered the 2019 historic flooding in north Alabama, reporting from some of the most severely affected areas in the region. I also investigate and report problems of domestic violence in north Alabama as well as mental health issues in our judicial system.

Prior to joining the WAAY 31 news team, I worked at WKRN News 2, the ABC affiliate in Nashville, Tennessee as both a news anchor and reporter for several years. I have worked as a news anchor, reporter and multimedia journalist in Missouri, Louisiana, Wyoming and Iowa. I graduated from the William Allen White School of Journalism & Mass Communications at the University of Kansas.

I am an active community volunteer and I enjoy volunteering with various non-profit organizations. I am currently involved with the Women’s Economic Development Council (WEDC) Foundation serving as the emcee for the 19th annual “Women Honoring Women” gala in Huntsville. The WEDC Foundation assists women in need of financial assistance, professional development, and provides mentoring to women who are economically disadvantaged. I have also served as a youth mentor for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization and volunteered at Boys and Girls Clubs in Louisiana.

In 2015, I was featured as one of “Nashville’s 25 Most Beautiful People” by Nashville Lifestyles Magazine, with Jake Owen, country music artist and television personalities Kellie Pickler and Chris Carmack, of the television series, Nashville. I am also a former NFL Kansas City Chiefs Cheerleader and former Mrs. Louisiana America. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, practicing yoga, and spending time with my family. My husband and I are the proud parents of a little girl and two Yorkshire Terriers.
