Cheryl has been an Anchor/Reporter with the CBS 6 News team since September 1984.
In June 2016, Cheryl was honored with the Virginia Association of Broadcasters (VAB) Distinguished Broadcaster Award. In April 2015 Cheryl was inducted into the Virginia Communications Hall of Fame.
Currently anchoring the long-time #1 CBS 6 News at Noon, in August 2009 Cheryl rejoined “Virginia This Morning”, as co-host of the 9-10 a.m. live weekday Talk/Entertainment show. Cheryl was co-host with Bill Bevins the inaugural year of the show from 2006-2007.
Since 2003, Cheryl has enjoyed challenging area students as host of “Battle of the Brains”, Central Virginia’s longest-running high school academic quiz show, which airs Saturdays at 10 a.m. on CBS 6.
With over four decades of broadcast experience, Cheryl has previously shared her knowledge of television and radio as an Adjunct Professor at Reynolds Community College in Richmond.
She spends many nights and weekends hosting or speaking at community events, emceeing pageants, and making many other personal appearances. Cheryl has also once narrated a planetarium show for the Science Museum of Virginia.
Cheryl says one of the fun highlights of her CBS 6 career was a speaking role (2004) on CBS’s longest-running daytime drama, “Guiding Light”, which ended a 72-year run in September 2009. She was able to do that while taking viewers behind the scenes on the popular “soap”.
Before coming to WTVR, Cheryl worked as a TV news Anchor/Reporter in Binghamton, New York , and a freelance “Lifestyles” reporter in Rochester, New York. Prior to that, she spent nine years as a Disc Jockey and in various positions in radio in her hometown of Rochester.
