Prior to serving at NBC, she has worked at Fox 5 after she joined in 2014 as a business reporter and anchor. For her work at the Fox station, she has received an Emmy nomination for her coverage ‘Lap of Luxury’.
The reporter came to the highlight after she reported on the death of retired basketball player Kobe Bryant and his daughter in January 2020. She referred to Bryant’s former team Los Angeles Lakers in which she verbally stumbled and said ‘Lakers’ to ‘Nakers’, instantly self-correcting ‘Los Angeles Lakers’.
This stumble led to her accused of using the racial slur nigger by several individuals, which she later denied. The dispute also led to the launch of a petition to have her fired that received more than 180k signatures. She has clarified that she had stuttered at the time by combining ‘Knicks’ and ‘Lakers’ into ‘Nakers’ and also apologized via Twitter.
