Pamela joined the Channel 11 News team in September 2013.
She was born in Jacksonville, Fla., and raised right outside of Detroit. From very early on, Pamela was fascinated with local news and the information it brought to viewers. It was no surprise to friends and family when she pursued a career in broadcast journalism.
Pamela attended the University of Michigan, where she majored in communications and minored in African-American studies. At Michigan, Pamela worked at the student-run TV station, WOLV-TV. She also interned at WDIV in Detroit, and at HOMTV in Okemos, Mich.
Her first TV job was in Toledo, Ohio. There, she worked as a multimedia journalist, which meant she would do her own camera work for her reports. After a couple of years in Toledo, Pamela headed a little further east to Cleveland.
She spent the past two years working at the NBC affiliate, WKYC. While there, Pamela reported extensively on the rescue and recovery of three missing women -- Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. Shortly after covering the court proceedings of their admitted kidnapper, Ariel Castro, Pamela made the move to Pittsburgh.
Pamela is excited to be in Pittsburgh and is ready to explore all the city has to offer. When she's not reporting the news, Pamela enjoys spending time with her friends, family and her pets. Pamela also enjoys traveling while pursuing another of her passions -- still photography. If you see her out and about, please say hello!
This year's fundraiser had a Chinese theme as the event coincides with the opening of the "China: Through the Looking Glass" exhibition.
