Germany is a national award-winning journalist, joining the KTVE/KARD news team as an
anchor and reporter. She brings a unique perspective to MyArkLaMiss with her keen sense of
humor and congenial style as a news personality. Germany made-up news stories as a curious
child and honed her interest in current events while competing in many local, state, regional, and
international pageants. She is a former Miss Teen Mississippi Miss Congeniality titleholder.

Prior to coming to KTVE/KARD, Germany spent 10 years in Los Angeles working in various
journalist roles. From anchoring the news on broadcast and radio to field reporting,
documentary filmmaking, hosting talk shows, and producing, she has a wealth of media
experience. In her career, Germany has interviewed thousands of people from all walks of life
and has had the privilege of interviewing some pretty interesting celebrities including California’s

Germany has covered many stories that made national headlines including the aftermath of two

reported at the Staples Center following Kobe Bryant’s death, and the George Floyd protests in
Los Angeles, to name a few.

Throughout her career, Germany has spent countless hours volunteering with various charities,
civic groups, schools, and community events. No matter where she is, she has remained active
in her community using her influence to raise awareness on various topics such as bullying
prevention, mental health awareness, and youth empowerment. She has been heavily engaged
in public speaking, hosting events, emceeing, and mentoring young people. Her motto is “If
you’re not reaching back to help anyone, then you’re not building a legacy.” In 2017, Germany
was selected by Soledad O’Brien to serve on a national panel to empower youth.

Germany is also a bestselling author and has had many favorite career highlights from
appearing in national television commercials, and music videos opposite Stevie Wonder and
Mary J. Blige, to primetime TV shows. One of her fondest memories is being selected by JJ
Abrams for a feature role in Star Trek: Into Darkness. She was also tapped to walk alongside
Vice President (then CA Senator) Kamala Harris for the 2018 MLK Day Parade in Los Angeles.

Her commitment to quality and excellence has resulted in numerous industry awards and
recognition. In 2018, Germany was named as one of the “Powerful Women Making A Difference
in Los Angeles” by the Los Angeles Business Journal. She is also the recipient of a Lifetime
Community Service Award from Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. In June 2017,
Germany was honored with her own day in her native Greenville, Mississippi. That same year
then-Lieutenant Governor of Mississipi Tate Reeves and MS Senator Robert Jackson
recognized Germany with a proclamation of honor for career achievement from the state of
Mississippi. The following year Germany was named the recipient of the Greenville Arts Council Greenville Honors Its Own [GHIO] Lifetime Achievement Award for outstanding professional
and civic contributions.

Germany has received the prestigious Sigma Delta Chi award for excellence in journalism from
