Troy Washington is WALB's Thomasville Bureau reporter.
From "The Pearl of the Prairie" (El Campo, Texas) to "The Rose City", she's no stranger to southern hospitality. Troy is a graduate of Prairie View A&M University where she earned her degree in Mass Media Communication, and she is one proud panther! She is also a charter member of 100 Collegiate Women of America, an international organization for college-trained women.
Troy grew up watching the news every morning, and she is excited to finally get the opportunity to live her childhood dream!
Troy interned at KTLA in Hollywood, California where she had the opportunity to do sideline reporting for Pac- 12 and LA Lakers basketball. Troy then returned to Houston, TX as a news intern at KRIV.
She joined the WALB news team as a news producer, but her passion for chasing news stories in the field wouldn't allow her to stay in the news room for too long.
A country girl at heart, Troy is always up for competitive outdoor activities! In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, working out, catching a good movie, and loves trying new cuisines!
She looks forward to telling your stories, and if you have any ideas feel free to send her an email.
When you see Troy around town, don't hesitate to say hello!
