Tia personality page fullI spent four years in Flint, Michigan. I always say that is where I grew up; I was able to hone my skills as an anchor and reporter there. I joined FOX40 in June of 2012. I must admit, moving from the Midwest is one of the best decisions I have ever made and one of the bravest.

I grew up in Chicago and called the Midwest home my entire life. I live for anchoring and reporting the news. My goal every time I step in front of the camera is to be creative and tell news in a compelling yet unique way.

When I am not working, you can catch me giving back or doing something spontaneous. When football season is in full swing, I am rooting for my alma mater…The Ohio State Buckeyes.

You can follow me on Facebook and Twitter, @Tia_Ewing.

I’m known in the newsroom for…

My nickname given to me by an assignment editor at FOX40 is Spicy. I have a smart and funny comment for everything. I am also known for my wild shoes, I love heels.

What keeps me going

I love talking to my family and friends…Laughter, I love to laugh. I can’t live without shopping either.

I give back to my community by…

I have always been big in volunteering; so much in fact that I have to be careful not to stretch myself too thin. In my last market I volunteered at over 150 events. I am a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sacramento.

Why FOX40?

I work for FOX40 because it’s a news station that tells the news differently. It’s the first place I have ever worked where you can truly be who you are. Sometimes in TV, news directors try to change who you are, what you look like…not here; your individuality is accepted. I love Sacramento for its diversity and the people here live life to the fullest, everyone seems free of worries.

My greatest TV moment

My greatest TV moment was telling the viewers in my last market on-air how much they meant to me. I cried and I think they realized how much I really enjoyed bringing them the news for four years.  Yes, I wear my heart on my sleeve.

TV moment I’d like to forget

The TV moment I would love to forget, I was on a great live shot in front of the courthouse. It was great, it was one for the resume tape…until this man walked up and started trying to have a conversation with me while I was on-air. Once I got off, I let that man have it, in a nice way of course, that’s why they call me Spicy.

If I had free time, I would …

If I had more free time I would sleep, travel, and pursue a singing career.
