Fox News Channel has signed veteran local newser Christina Coleman as a Fox News correspondent.

Coleman comes to FNC from KSDK-TV in St. Louis, and she’ll be based out of FNC’s Los Angeles offices.

Since 2014, Coleman served as an anchor and lead night beat reporter for the St. Louis NBC station, focusing on community reporting. While there, she actively covered the events in Ferguson, Mo., following the death of Michael Brown. Notably, she was one the first journalists on the scene of the riots days after the unarmed teenager was shot and killed. Additionally, Coleman traveled to Geneva, Switzerland, to cover Brown’s parents as they testified before the U.N. Committee Against Torture.

Prior to this, Coleman worked as a local correspondent at both KABB-TV (Fox) and WOAI-TV (NBC) in her hometown of San Antonio. Coleman was member of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), serving as vice president of the San Antonio Chapter.

Coleman also served as a reporter at KCEN-TV (NBC) in Central Texas, where she was on location at Fort Hood to report on one of the deadliest mass shootings at a military base.

The Texas A&M grad began her career as a reporter at KIMO-TV (ABC) in Anchorage, Alaska, where she contributed to the station’s evening newscast. During her time in Alaska, she frequently interviewed former vice presidential candidate and then-Governor Sarah Palin.
