Morning Show Reporter & On-Air Host
Ali is a Gracie and Emmy award- winning journalist. She's currently a Morning Show Reporter for WFMZ News in Allentown, PA and a host for U.S. Figure Skating.
She heads into each work day with the expectation of being live throughout the station's 4 hour sunrise show covering breaking news across Philadelphia, the Lehigh Valley and parts of northwestern New Jersey in the New York City Market. Working mornings has enabled her to be a jack of all trades… from hard news to features, and quick on your feet day-turns to complex multi-part stories.
Prior to her time in the Lehigh Valley, she spent a year and a half reporting and filling in as anchor for WMBD News in Peoria, IL.
Ali is a proud graduate of Emerson College, where she received her B.S. in Broadcast Journalism. During her time in college, she had the opportunity to cover President Donald Trump's Inauguration and report on the red carpet of the Emmy Awards.
The red carpet is her second home. She's conducted interviews with celebrities and Olympic athletes, worked press for major concerts, reported on the red carpet of the Tony's, Kids' Choice Awards and Hollywood Film Awards, and was mentored by Deborah Norville while interning for Inside Edition. Her most memorable interview was with Chelsea Clinton in the heat of Hillary Clinton's 2016 Presidential campaign.
