Kima Scott joined the CBS 6 news team in July of 2013. She serves as the weekend Breaking News Reporter and weekend editor.
Kima is a native of Dinwiddie, Virginia and is also a proud Navy veteran. In the Navy she worked as a Boatswain’s Mate on the USS Carl Vinson and the USS Enterprise. It was during her time in the Navy that she discovered her passion for reporting.
After the military Kima attended San Diego City College, where she anchored and reported for the Emmy Award winning student newscast, ‘Newscene’. While in San Diego Kima also gained experience from interning at our sister station and FOX affiliate – KSWB. As much as Kima loved San Diego, her heart remained here in Virginia, so she moved back after her internship and earned her Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Mass Communications from Virginia State University.
In her spare time you can catch Kima out in RVA running, trying out new and local restaurants, and playing with her puppies, Bruiser and Gemma. She loves meeting new friends and hearing stories, so feel free to contact her at email@example.com
