Aisha Howard - WNEM TV 5

Aisha Howard

This hometown Journalist is glad to get back to her roots.

After watching the nightly news for years as a child, Aisha often wondered how do those people on television know everything?

That curiosity turned into action leading her family to give her the nickname Rona Barrett, after the first Hollywood Entertainment Reporter.

Early on Aisha knew anything that had to do with talking and asking questions would be the perfect fit. So the Flint native headed to Michigan State University to earn a Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism.

After graduating from Michigan State, the proud Spartan headed to the big city of Atlanta, GA where she worked as an Assignment Editor. After following the big stories of the day for other reporters Aisha knew it was her turn to get in front of the camera.

Aisha landed her first on-air job at WCTI-12 in New Bern, North Carolina. After a year's time Aisha worked her way up from one-man-band weekend reporter to weekend evening anchor.

Now the anchor/reporter has found her way back home and is ready to deliver the news over the same airwaves she grew up watching.

Aisha is excited to get out and meet new people as well as running into a few familiar faces. With her outgoing personality, Aisha has never met a stranger.

So be sure to say hello! And watch out for her…she has to get used to driving in the snow again.
