Whitney Thomas was born and raised in the Big Easy — Louisiana, New Orleans. Whitney attended Southern University (Geaux Jags!), where she graduated with a degree in mass communication.
She began her career here at WVLA, where she worked as a production assistant.
She also continued into Journalism as a broadcast news anchor for Louisiana Radio Network.
Whitney is so excited to be transitioning into another chapter of her career as a reporter/multimedia journalist for WVLA/WGMB.
Whitney is proud of her Cajun heritage. She is also proud to be building a career in a community that means so much to her.
Whitney loves exploring and connecting with others from diverse backgrounds, so when she’s not obsessively looking for her next story to cover, she’s probably at home reading a book or relaxing by the lake.
