Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to celebrate TV and Film’s glorious past.
Today, we’re revisiting Rolonda!
Meet us below…
After graduating from Spelman College Rolonda Watts launched her career in media by becoming an assignment reporter at WFMY-TV down in Greensboro, North Carolina.
As her popularity rose, she became one of the most sought-after players in broadcasting and caught the attention of Inside Edition which was housed by King World Productions…also home to The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The rest, as they say, is history.
