Sydney Heiberger joined the News 12 NBC 26 team as a Multimedia Journalist in June 2019.
Since she was a child, Sydney has been known for having an inquisitive mind and a desire to learn. In fifth grade, she realized she could channel her curiosity into Journalism, and a passion was born.
Sydney is a Maryland native, but went to the University of Georgia for her Bachelor's in Journalism. Since the first day of her freshmen year, she knew she wanted to stay in the South for as long as she could.
During her time in college, Sydney interned at Good Morning Washington in Washington D.C., NBC4 Washington, and CNN Newsource where she was eventually promoted to Freelance Assignment Editor/Producer. She was also awarded the 2017-2018 Board of Governor's Scholarship from the Southeast EMMY awards for her excellence in broadcast news.
Sydney is so excited to learn more about the Augusta community and get connected with viewers. She loves all things Georgia Bulldogs, binge-watching TV shows, hanging out with her friends, and trying new restaurants.
