Cheyenne joined the DC News Now news team in 2020 as a Montgomery County Bureau Reporter.
Cheyenne takes pride in her ability to connect with the community and share the stories that matter most to them. Her passion for journalism was born out of her desire to build trust and provide a platform for those who are underrepresented to share their voices. At one time, Cheyenne was one of those struggling to find her voice. “I grew up with a speech impediment,” Cheyenne said, “Which caused me to be very quiet growing up. It wasn’t until I realized the power of my voice that I began to use it to advocate for myself and others. I never thought I would be comfortable and able to speak on tv. I’ve learned that if you work for what you want…nothing is impossible.”
Throughout her career, Cheyenne was on the air to cover George Floyd protests, the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling, the Silver Spring explosion, and the Van Ness shooting. Cheyenne also has experience covering elections, most notably the 2020 Democratic New Hampshire Primary.
Cheyenne also has more than five years of experience as a Hollywood Entertainment Host. She has interviewed celebrities such as cast members from The Real Housewives franchises to artists Stephanie Mills, Yolanda Adams, and Master P and actors from HBO & ABC series “The Chi” & “How to Get Away With Murder.”
She began her career by spending four years in her home state of Pennsylvania as a Junior Reporter for Fox29. She then went on to become a Production Coordination and Fill-in Reporter for Nexstar’s Philadelphia station and PHL17.
Cheyenne graduated from West Chester University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and Women and Gender Studies. She then went on to obtain a Master’s of Journalism from Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communication.
Cheyenne is active in her community as a volunteer and public speaker. She is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists, NAACP, For(bes) the Culture, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, and a Lupus Foundation Ambassador. She also mentors students from her alma maters pursuing careers in journalism. In her free time, Cheyenne loves to travel, play soccer, and explore new restaurants.
