Mariah Wiggs joined the WHNT News 19 team in June of 2022 as a Multimedia Journalist.
She comes from the sunshine state of Florida where she was born and raised. Mariah attended college in the state’s capital at Florida A&M University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism.
As an active scholar, Mariah served as an orientation leader, resident assistant, FAMU News 20 Anchor and Vice President of the FAMU Association of Black Journalists.
A self-proclaimed “old soul”, Mariah enjoys listening to classic soul and R&B music in her spare time. While at FAMU she hosted her own radio show and produced a segment called “The Soul Show”. This platform allowed Mariah to interview Grammy – Winning artist Anthony Hamilton, Grammy – Nominated and lead singer of Mint Condition Stokley Williams and more.
Mariah looks forward to bringing some of that Florida sunshine to the station and the stories she produces here at News 19.
