Cari Champion Wiki

Champion began her career in broadcasting at various television stations. For her first reporting job, she relocated to West Virginia. She later stated of her time there: “I was a one-man band with a camera and a tripod, which was terrible.

She wrote for the Daily Bruin and was inspired to pursue a career in journalism by UCLA alumni such as Matea Gold of the Washington Post, who was the student newspaper’s editor in chief. Champion was drawn to journalism with the intention of changing negative stereotypes about African Americans:

But I enjoyed it because it was something I wanted to do. I’ve always wanted to be a journalist.” She worked as a reporter for the Orange County Newschannel in Santa Ana, California before moving to WPTV-TV in West Palm Beach, Florida in 2002.

Champion moved to Florida and began covering news such as human interest stories and the state’s devastating hurricanes. She developed an interest in tennis while working as a reporter there, after covering players such as Venus and Serena Williams: “They increased my enthusiasm for the sport.
