Neima Abdulahi joined FOX 46 Charlotte in July 2013 as a Digital Journalist. She was the first reporter hired for the news department, arriving six months before the start-up station would launch a newscast.
Before joining the WJZY team, Neima was a multi-media journalist for the college award-winning newscast, Elon Local News at Elon University.
Neima is no stranger to the Fox family. She interned at FOX-5 Atlanta for four consecutive summers during her time in college through the Emma Bowen Foundation internship program.
Neima was born in Somalia and moved to the United States in 1996. She considers herself an honorary southerner, a music enthusiast, and the biggest Atlanta Braves fan around.
Besides calling Charlotte home, she also lives on social media. Feel free to tweet her at @NeimaFOX46, like her facebook fanpage at www.facebook.com/neimanews and e-mail her any story ideas at Neima.Abdulahi@foxtv.com
