ANJALI PATEL joined the WLOS team as a reporter in January 2021. She comes to Asheville from North Carolina's neighbor, the Palmetto State! She grew up in Greenville, S.C. and graduated from the University of South Carolina's Honors College in May 2019. Shortly after, she began her first on-air job as a reporter for WLOS's sister station, WPDE in Myrtle Beach. She worked there for about a year and a half, covering multiple hurricanes, tropical storms and tornadoes. She was part of the team at WPDE that won a Southeast Regional Emmy for their coverage of Hurricane Dorian in 2019. She is excited to trade in her flip flops for hiking boots and make Asheville her new home!
