Ruby Durham is WCNC Charlotte’s Social Anchor on Wake Up Charlotte from 5 to 7 a.m. weekdays.
When Ruby was the Traffic Reporter previously, she launched a segment called “What’s Driving You Crazy,” where she got to the bottom of viewers' issues on local roads.
She often produces “Reasons to Smile,” where she reports on uplifting community-focused stories.
Originally from Greenville, South Carolina, the Emmy-nominated journalist came to the Queen City from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. At the coast, Ruby served as an anchor and traffic reporter at WMBF News, the NBC affiliate.
Ruby has a bachelor’s degree in Communication, with a focus in broadcast journalism, from Coastal Carolina University. While in college, Ruby was also a member of Coastal Carolina's championship-winning Track and Field team. She also completed a Capstone project that caught the eye of other broadcast students to start a campus show which is in the works today.
When she’s not bringing you the news, Ruby enjoys working out, traveling, trying new foods, and meeting new people.
A quote that sums up Ruby, would be from none other than Maya Angelou.
"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style."
If there is a story giving you “Reasons to Smile or “Driving You Crazy” on the roads, Ruby wants to hear about it.
