Title: Reporter
vlyons@wevv.com

Valerie is originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She grew up watching the news with her parents but her interest in journalism and storytelling sparked in high school when she joined her school’s drama club and newspaper. She credits her time in musical theatre as a big help in her on-air performance.

She is a graduate of the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and majored in Telecommunication-News with a concentration in Political Science. At UF, she was an award-winning anchor and reporter for her school’s PBS affiliate station, WUFT.

A long way from the Sunshine State, Valerie is excited to be in the Midwest. She’s always longed for winters and looks forward to the change in seasons. When she’s not reporting, she loves exploring the Tri-State and meeting new people, reading, playing piano and spending time with her dog Chewie.
