Since 1998, Rhonda Walker has been helping Detroiters get motivated and ready for the day with her incredible energy, enthusiasm, impeccable style, and passion for her hometown. A confessed morning person, Rhonda starts her day at 2 a.m.
Rhonda began her broadcast career on WJBK-Fox 2 News Detroit, and joined the WDIV-Local 4 news team in 2003 as the weekday morning news anchor. In 2007, the talented and versatile journalist took a break from the morning news and held a dual position as evening co- anchor and health reporter. Before this assignment, Rhonda also held the position of noon news anchor at Local 4 and hosted and produced 4 Your Children, a dynamic and compelling segment focused on news important to both parents and children.
In addition to her regular in-studio duties, Rhonda annually hosts special programming events such Local 4's broadcasts of America's Thanksgiving Parade and the North American International Auto Show Charity Preview.
Rhonda's deep passion for inspiring children prompted her to establish the Rhonda Walker Foundation in 2003 to serve teen girls. In its eighth year, the RWF supports inner-city teen girls from throughout the Detroit Public School System. As a testimony to her desire to help as many teen girls as she can, Rhonda is hands-on and involved in every aspect of the RWF. She also takes a personal interest in each of the girls in the RWF, whose mission is: to empower inner-city teen girls towards becoming strong, confident, successful and moral future leaders.
For more information on the Foundation, and to learn how you can help positively affect the life of an inner city teen girl, please visit the RWF's website, rhondawalkerfoundation.org.
