Siobhan Riley

Siobhan knew from a very young age that she wanted to become a journalist because of her passion of writing. She started writing children's stories when she was in elementary school.   She is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio and grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina. Siobhan graduated Summa Cum Laude from North Carolina A&T State University with her BA in Journalism and Mass Communication in 2005. There, she received the "Most Outstanding Graduate Award" in her department. 
 
Before coming to Michigan, she worked as a reporter/ fill-in anchor at WCBI in Columbus, Mississippi where she received the Mississippi Associated Press Award for her spot news coverage on a Starkville, MS fire that took the lives of nine people. 
 
Siobhan started her career in radio at 1510 WEAL Gospel when she was in college; also known as one of the top five gospel radio stations in the country. She also interned at WUPN in Winston-Salem, NC and CBS News in New York. Before making her way in front of the camera, she was a production assistant at WXII-TV in Winston, Salem, North Carolina. Two months later, she was offered her first on-air job in Gainesville, FL where she was a one man band reporter.
 
In her spare time, she enjoys reading and traveling. She also has a passion for motivational speaking and mentoring youth. Siobhan also enjoys being a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Flint. Outside of television, she shadows her father and spends time learning about his national leadership consulting business that he started after retiring from Proctor & Gamble, where he was the operations manager. Her father's business is called "Nehemiah-The Leadership Company."
 
Her favorite quote comes from her college professor Nagatha Tonkins. "As long as you keep God first, success can be yours."
