Elizabeth Hopkins '00
Morning News Anchor Nominated for Emmy
Elizabeth Hopkins, a reporter with Boston's FOX 25 Morning News, starts her on-air day at 4:00 am, bringing early risers up-to-date and covering developing stories. She enjoys the unpredictable format of a live morning show and going head-to-head with her colleagues in the show's "Let It Rip" and "Mail Call" segments.
Waking up with early birds who want their coffee, news, weather and traffic is nothing new to Elizabeth. Her predawn career most recently includes anchoring the morning and noon newscasts at WPRI-TV in Providence, Rhode Island.
Elizabeth has reported and anchored extensively across the country. She was an anchor and reporter at WKOW in Madison, Wisconsin, where she received an Emmy nomination.
Elizabeth says, "RCC helped me sharpen my focus and decide on a career in journalism. It’s a great stepping stone."
After graduating from RCC, she earned a BA in Communication Studies from The College of New Jersey.
