Olivia joined the WHNT News 19 team in July of 2018 as a multimedia journalist and quickly moved to the sports department as a sports reporter and weekend anchor. In April 2022, she was named Sports Director.
Olivia grew up in the metro Atlanta area and loves cheering on her Atlanta sports teams but when it comes to where her loyalties lie for collegiate sports, she says Roll Tide! She is a graduate of the University of Alabama where she earned a bachelor’s degree in telecommunication and film with minors in both communication studies and sports journalism.
Growing up as a University of Texas fan and then attending the University of Alabama, it’s safe to say sports are a pretty big deal to her, but she’s known she’s wanted to work in the sports broadcasting business for as long as she can remember.
In her spare time, Olivia loves attending sports events, especially Alabama and Atlanta teams, hanging out with her friends and family, and finding new favorite restaurants.
