Before moving to Denver, Zora was a reporter at WNCT, the CBS affiliate in Greenville, North Carolina. She won RTDNAC’s Reporter of the Year award for her work in 2016.
While in North Carolina, Zora covered just about everything and is no stranger to the big stories. She has covered multiple hurricanes and tropical storms including Hurricane Matthew. The historic storm gained national attention after it caused major flooding in Eastern North Carolina. She traveled the state of North Carolina to cover the 2016 presidential election. She was the stations go-to political reporter and enjoyed breaking down the democratic process for viewers. As a former Division 1 basketball player at Elon University, Zora will always love sports. It was normal to see her filling in as a sports anchor or on the football field reporting.
