Asia Tabb joined the KTAL team as an Anchor/ Reporter in March 2022.
Previously coming to Shreveport, she was a Reporter/Multi-Media Journalist at WHP-TV in Harrisburg, PA. Her passion for broadcast news was born out of her genuine desire to serve others. Asia was born and raised in Norfolk, VA. She graduated from Old Dominion University (ODU) where she majored in Communications with a minor in African American Studies.
While at ODU, she hosted a campus radio podcast at WODU Studios called “A&B Conversation”, focusing on pop culture, hip hop, and R&B. Asia made a name for herself when she joined legendary radio host/producer, Doc Christian. She worked closely with Doc Christian for her role on “The Gospel Express” on WHOV 88.1 FM and was host and producer for “Unrestricted Praise” at Praise FM. Listeners could tune in around the Hampton Roads area and on the Internet Worldwide via iHeartRadio, she focused on positivity on youth and music.
Asia got her break in television news at KTVO in Ottumwa, IA. She credits her former Assistant News Director, Andy Grove, to have the patience to help her hone her writing skills as a budding journalist. Andy’s sudden death in 2020 propelled Asia to dig even deeper to carry out Andy’s dream for her and others like her. While the 2020 Iowa caucuses were gearing up, Asia followed many candidates through their campaign trail from Senator Cory Booker, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, and now the 46th President of the United States Joe Biden.
Asia is motivated by telling people’s stories and getting results. She says “My motto is meeting people where they are and showing them that I care. Knowing that I’m talking to people that are usually ignored lets me know what I’m doing is important to someone.”
