Meet the Team: Victoria Shirley

Victoria Shirley is a multimedia journalist and also produces and anchors the Sunday 8 a.m. morning show. 

She was born and raised in the Washington D.C. area, but Louisiana has been her home for four years now. Before coming to KSLA News 12, she worked in Northeast Louisiana at KNOE 8 News as a multimedia journalist and fill-in anchor. 

Victoria knew she wanted to work in TV news ever since she anchored her 5th grade school and high school morning news shows. Her dreams of working in the business were solidified after interning at Newport News TV, WAVY NBC 10, and WTKR News Channel 3, all located in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia.

Victoria graduated from Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia (Go Captains!) with a degree in Communications and Political Science. During college, she was the Editor in Chief of the campus newspaper and the founder of the TV news program, CNU TV.

She is an AP award winning journalist and proud member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.

In her spare time, Victoria likes spending time with her new husband Clay and their two rescue dogs Beaux and Ruby.
