Heather Bopra is Mid-Michigan's only local Traffic Reporter. She grew up in the Thumb and is happy to be reporting about the roads that she grew up traveling.
Heather began her broadcasting career as an evening DJ at WBTI in Port Huron. After several years as a DJ and a stint at WUPS in Mt. Pleasant, she moved into the news department back in Port Huron. There she enjoyed reporting the news for the morning shows on WBTI and WPHM and covering local news events. There, Heather received several news writing awards and got her first taste of television news reporting for CNN Headline News Local Edition. Heather also spent several years reporting traffic for TV and radio stations across the state while working for AAA Michigan before joining ABC12 in 2008.
When not working, Heather likes to spend time with her husband Rob and son Quinn. She also enjoys camping with friends and family, and reading. Follow Heather on Twitter @TrafficHeather and feel free to send her an e-mail at heather.bopra@abc12.
