WDIV morning anchor Rhonda Walker has been awarded the NABJ Angelo B. Henderson Community Service Award.
The award is given to a journalist who has had a positive impact on the community outside the realm of journalism.
“I was blessed to get my first job in television 20 years ago in Detroit, the city where I was born. It was an honor, a privilege and tremendous blessing and I quickly felt a calling from God to use His blessing upon my life to bless others,” said Walker.
Walker has her own organization called the Rhonda Walker Foundation which she started 15 years ago. It is dedicated to empowering inner-city teen girls by developing their confidence, morals and character allowing them to take their rightful place as future leaders.
She also works closely with the Girls Into Women program in Detroit.
Walker makes more than 1000 appearances each year.
