Aliah Keller joined the WTRF news team as a multimedia journalist in Wheeling, West Virginia in February 2020. As a general assignment nightside reporter, she's covered stories beyond school board and city council meetings. She's done it all from live protests and Ukraine rallies to tornado damage and live breaking news.
Aliah's hometown is Medina, Ohio. She grew up watching FOX 8 News, Cleveland with her parents and fell in love with television news. She went on to pursue her passion for telling stories as a journalism major at Kent State University. During college, she had a hand at reporting news and television news producing at Kent State's student media cable channel, TV2. She started as just a young freshman and continued to explore her dreams in her internships at WFMJ Youngstown and WKYC Cleveland.
She graduated KSU with a bachelor's in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Psychology in just three years and packed her bags to make her first move 10 hours away from home to Charleston, South Carolina. She got her start as a TV news producer at WCSC and had great experience learning the ins and outs of a newsroom, but as someone who's always been curious and digging deeper, she left producing to be a reporter at WTRF.
Telling stories of people in her community will always be her passion and she hopes that passion will carry her to a strong and successful career in journalism.
