Demetria Green co-anchors PHL17 Morning News. She comes to Philadelphia from Huntsville, Alabama, where she spent the last four years as the evening co-anchor.
Demetria was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago where her love of journalism was initially sparked. Her pursuit of journalism as a profession came only after she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Florida A&M University and held several unfulfilling positions with Fortune 500 Companies. She lives by the mantra “Build the Future You Want.” Therefore, she left her career in business and returned to her first love of journalism and obtained a Master’s Degree in Communication.
She continues to grow as a journalist from her initial full-time position in Dothan, Alabama, to now. In the past, Demetria hosted the red carpet at the Country Music Awards in Nashville, interviewed local and national politicians, and pressed civil rights leaders on issues affecting the country. Her work was recognized by the Associated Press and she won an award for Best Series on “Alabama’s Immigration Debate.”
In her spare time, Demetria worked as an adjunct speech instructor at local community colleges.
She is a proud member of NABJ (National Association for Black Journalists) and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
Demetria enjoys traveling and finding any opportunity to dance! She couldn’t be more thrilled to live and work in the vibrant city of Philadelphia! Demetria and her husband can’t wait to explore the Delaware Valley and the surrounding areas!”
