WPLG-TV, Local 10
Local 10 reporter/anchor Neki Mohan has worked all over the country, but she feels most at home here in South Florida.
Born in New York and raised in Trinidad and Tobago, Neki connects with the thousands in the Caribbean community that have made their homes here. She is very active in the Caribbean community and understands the unique qualities that contribute to the diverse blend that is South Florida.
Neki joined the Local 10 News team in July 2004, just in time to cover four hurricanes in a row. She got international attention as the only television journalist to report live from Jamaica during Hurricane Ivan.
Neki came to Local 10 from Cleveland, Ohio where she anchored the morning and noon show and did special reports.
Prior to working in Cleveland, she worked in Los Angeles, where she reported from the red carpet at the Oscars to the gritty streets of the inner city. She also reported from NATO headquarters during the air strikes on Afghanistan.
Neki has a wealth of experience. She has also worked in Jackson Mississippi and at ABC News and WUSA-TV in Washington DC. She has a BS in Journalism and Politics from the University of Maryland at College Park.
Coming to Local 10 marks Neki’s return to South Florida. Earlier in her career, she worked for another local station here for three years.
While working in all over the country, Neki decided that there is no place like South Florida.
When she’s not in front of the camera, Neki is an avid runner, a student mentor and she loves to travel with her family.
