Christina Thompson joined the NewsChannel 12 team in June of 2018.
She moved to Eastern North Carolina from Winston-Salem after graduating from Wake Forest University with a B.A. degree in Communication and minor degrees in Journalism and Writing.
While in college, she interned for CBS This Morning in New York City and WGHP Fox 8 in High Point, North Carolina. She also reported for her college’s Media page on iTunes University.
She discovered her love of reporting when she was in high school. At the age of 15, she got her very first job as a reporter for the show Teen Kids News. Since then, she has continued to learn and grow in journalism.
Christina loves North Carolina, and is so excited to be living near the Crystal Coast. In her spare time, she likes to paint, go on runs with her dog, and hunt for sea glass on the beach.
She loves meeting new people, and definitely wants others to introduce themselves to her if they see her around. If you want to talk or have a story idea please feel free to contact her by email, Twitter or Instagram.
