The legacy continues with Cheryl Washington – television and radio personality, magazine columnist, public speaker, media coach, voice-over artist, website developer, production company owner, educator and community service activist. An alumnus of Rutgers University, Washington’s off-camera duties began at WNBC-TV as an intern and production assistant in local news and programming. She was assigned to “Positively Black” and “Not For Women Only” co-hosted by Barbara Walters and Hugh Downs. She subsequently moved to WABC-TV as an associate producer on “The Stanley Siegel Show” and later rejoined the eponymous talk show host as his producer at WCBS-TV. Washington worked on WNYW-TV’s popular award winning ”Good Day New York” morning show as an entertainment and lifestyle reporter/co-host. Later, she anchored the FOX franchise line-up: “Good Day Wake-Up,” “Good Day First Edition” and “Good Day Sunday.” As a major part of the team that catapulted the show to number one status over national competitors “Today” and “Good Morning America,” Washington was tapped to host the “New York Wired” game show, co-produced by the New York State Lottery Commission. Following her tenure at FOX, Washington contributed feature news on WNBC-TV’s “Weekend Today in New York.” Previously, Washington served at CNN as an executive producer and reporter. Most notably, Washington produced and reported entertainment news for CNN’s “Showbiz Today.” In that capacity, she conducted one-on-one celebrity interviews, covered red carpet award shows and went behind-the-scenes of movie, television and music video productions.
