A news junkie with a thirst for knowledge is the best way to describe Annick Joseph, who is French-Canadian and Haitian from Montreal, Canada, now a dual citizen of Canada and the United States.
Moving to the U.S. to pursue the “American Dream” she started her academic career at Central Carolina Community College in Sanford, NC and pursued both an Associate Degree in Broadcast Technologies and an Associate in Arts.
From there she was able to get into her “dream university” to pursue a journalism degree at the newly named ‘UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media’ and is now a proud Tarheel.
She worked as an anchor/reporter for the student-run newscast, as well as the on-campus radio station while at CCCC.
Once at UNC, she worked as a reporter for UNC’s award-winning student run newscast ‘Carolina Week’ and was a photo journalist for the long running ‘Daily Tarheel’.
While at CCCC, she turned an internship into a job at WTVD where she worked as a video coordinator for Carolina News Link and at the assignment desk. She left that position to work on the road as a video director and stage manager for top grossing entertainers like New Edition, Katt Williams, Mike Epps and many more.
Annick has also completed internships with Radio One in Maryland, CNN in Atlanta, WCHL in Chapel Hill, CBS 17 in Raleigh and many more.
In 2018, she landed a reporter position at ‘The Robesonian’ in Lumberton North Carolina where she worked as a crime reporter and content producer.
During her time there, she covered some big stories that made national headlines such as Hurricane Florence, 10 firefighters charged with arson, and manhunt, that lasted days, for four bank robbers involved in a Hollywood-style bank heist, who shot at police officers during a high-speed chase that spanned three counties, and a high-profile trial of a man accused of killing a police officer.
She left that position to get back into television, eventually landing a job in Billings, Montana as producer/MMJ, her role consisted of more producing than reporting.
Her love of storytelling landed her in a reporter/anchor/producer role at Redwood News in February 2020, where she has covered one of the most active wildfire seasons on record, including the August Complex Fire, the largest in California’s history.
In her free time, she enjoys reading, writing and any activities that involve the outdoors, a lake or a beach, which she’s had the opportunity to experience while on the North Coast.
She is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists, the National Academy of Television Arts and Science, Northwest Chapter, and most recently has dedicated one day out of the week to help clean-up Humboldt County’s beautiful landscape with the PacOut Green Team.
