Bianca switched to broadcast journalism from print journalism in October 2019 by joining the WJHL team as a digital content producer.
She is a South African native who traveled to 16 countries but decided to settle in East Tennessee. In 2017, she graduated from East Tennessee State University with a degree in mass communications. During her senior year at ETSU, she began interning with The Greeneville Sun newspaper and continued working as the county beat reporter and editor of the agriculture section for over a year. In 2018, she married Kingsport-native Timothy Dougherty.
When she’s not working on breaking news for the WJHL website, App and social media, you can find her doing do-it-yourself projects or snuggled up with her dog and two cats watching movies.
