Christina Burgess joined the Newswest 9 team in March of 2021 as a Multi-skilled Journalist.
She graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Political Science.
During her time at VCU, Christina anchored and reported for the student-run newscast VCU InSight.
In January of 2019, she interned at WTVR-CBS6 in Richmond, VA. While finishing her last year of school, she then joined the team at CBS6 as a Production Assistant and Weekend Assignment Editor.
Christina is an Army brat, so she has had the chance to call a lot of different places home, like Germany, California, Georgia, Kansas and even Texas. She's lived in a total of nine states and two different countries, but she calls Columbia, SC home.
When she's not working, she enjoys traveling, reading, trying different food spots, spending time with family or watching a good, cheesy romance movie.
Christina is excited to get out into the Midland-Odessa communities and get to know everyone!
