Lori Wilson

Lori Wilson joined NBC10 in 2005 as a general assignment reporter. She can currently be seen co-anchoring NBC10 News Today (Monday-Friday from 4:30-7am) and anchoring NBC10 News at 11am (Monday-Friday at 11am). An Emmy-nominated host and anchor, Wilson also spent four years co-hosting The 10! Show.

Before joining NBC10, Wilson worked as a morning anchor, weekend anchor, entertainment reporter and general assignment reporter at WGCL in Atlanta, Georgia.  Prior to joining WGCL, Wilson was a news anchor and health reporter for KSLA in Shreveport, Louisiana.  

Wilson’s love for writing and storytelling is what led her to choose a career as a television news broadcaster.  In 1997, while working as an intern at WGCL (formerly WGNX), she landed her first television-broadcasting job at WCIA in Champaign, Illinois.

In her spare time, Lori enjoys lending her voice to those who don't have access to the written word because of blindness and visual impairments.  You'll be able to hear Lori reading spiritual-based publications which are available as DAISY downloads and ASB's Internet Streaming Service.
