COLUMBIA, S.C. — Zoie Henry is a multi-skilled journalist and weekend morning anchor for News19. She joined the team June 2022 from our sister station KFSM 5NEWS in Northwest Arkansas where she was evening weekend anchor. .
Zoie is originally from the Windy City, otherwise known as Chicago. Growing up in Illinois fully prepared her for deep freezes in the winter but she has experienced some intense southern summers over the years. In Arkansas, she covered everything from community-driven stories, to following a set of triplets’ journey home from the ICU, to the high-profile Joshua Duggar child pornography trial, as well as the ongoing response to COVID-19.
Zoie enjoys talking to people about their communities and has a passion for sharing their stories. Aside from her storytelling, her first duty is to tell the truth.
Before getting her start in Arkansas, Zoie reported for KOMU 8 News, a station owned and operated by her alma mater, the University of Missouri-Columbia. While in college, she interned for the investigative unit at WLS-TV in Chicago.
At Mizzou she discovered that the words ‘talks too much’ appearing on her report card years prior wasn’t for nothing and put her voice to good use in her Bachelor of Journalism degree.
Zoie is a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She is also member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
When she’s not on camera, telling stories, or talking all things the Midlands, Zoie is probably somewhere watching a Marvel movie or blasting Beyonce on her speaker. Aside from tv, Zoie enjoys Broadway shows, professional dance like with Alvin Ailey Dance Theater, and trying new foods.
Zoie is so excited to call Columbia home and tell your stories. Get to know Zoie and her work on Twitter, Instagram @ZoieHenryNews and on Facebook @ZoieHenry or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
