Briana Harper is the weekday evening reporter at NBC Charlotte. She was born and raised in Asheville and a proud graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Heels!). Briana is thrilled to be back home in the Carolinas after her tv news career took her to Gainesville, FL for her first reporting job, then New Bern, NC working at WCTI NewsChannel 12, and later WCPO in Cincinnati, OH.

What Briana enjoys most about her job as a reporter is getting a chance to meet new characters everyday with a different story and experience to share. She’s also a member of the National Association of Black Journalists.

When she’s not on-air you can find her spending time with family and friends, exploring new restaurants in the Queen City, traveling, or binge-watching a Netflix show.
