Lia Fernandez is a Multimedia Journalist who joined the News 12 NBC 26 team in October 2017.
Lia is so excited to be in Augusta. A native of Tampa, Florida, Lia graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in broadcast journalism and a digital media minor. Go Knights!
During her time there she did more than just have her nose in a book studying. Lia hosted her own radio show, wrote for the school paper, online news site, and magazine, all while staying involved in the Greek Sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta. Lia also took on many roles for UCF's Knightly News station, including producer, reporter, and anchor.
During her college years, Lia interned for one summer at WFLA NewsChannel 8 in Tampa, where she wrote scripts for on-air broadcast, accompanied photojournalists as a stand-in reporter and contributed story ideas.
Lia's passion for this industry comes from her drive to help get people answers, and hold people accountable for their actions. She loves connecting over social media, so follow along on Facebook and Twitter @LiaWRDW.
Off the air, you can catch Lia running, literally, around Augusta where she lives. She loves to be active and outside enjoying the beautiful weather.
