Tresia Bowles is a true Georgia peach who knew she wanted to work in news early on. She anchored her elementary school morning announcements in 5th grade at James H. Brown Elementary.
After graduating with honors from Sandy Creek High School in 2012, she stayed in Georgia by attending Valdosta State University. She graduated Cum Laude in 2016 with a major in mass media and a minor in dance.
Her first job in the news industry was a Digital Content Producer at KPLC in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Within her first year, she was promoted to start reporting and she helped produce sponsored content for the station, including an informative segment called “Babies 101". She also got to do a special black history month segment.
She now anchors WITN News at Sunrise on Saturday and Sunday and reports during the week. She is very excited about this new opportunity and WITN is even more happy to have her!
When she's not working at WITN, she's working out, dancing, or cuddling with her mutt (a shih tzu/poodle/chihuahua named Prince) on the couch binge-watching something on Netflix. She plans to continue to teach dance and fitness around Greenville, so if you see her at the gym, be sure to say, "Hi!"
