Neesey Payne Career and Education

Payne is a proud 2010 alumnus of Radford University where she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Media Studies. In regard to her professional, Payne serves at WDBJ 7 News as a morning news anchor, appearing on “WDBJ7 Mornin'”. Before joining WDBJ-TV, Payne worked in print media and radio.

After graduating from Radford University in the year 2009, Payne struggled to find a job during a tough economic period. Despite having internships, good grades, and applying for jobs early, she ended up working at a fast-food restaurant for over a year. In her speech “Pushing through the Payne” at Radford University, she shared these experiences, emphasizing that everyone’s career path is unique and to avoid comparing oneself to others.

Eventually, Payne accepted a job at a local newspaper, a role she initially resisted because it was not her preferred type of writing. This position, however, allowed her to leave the fast food job and quickly move up from a reporter to an editor. But with rapid promotion came overwhelming responsibilities, leading to her being consumed by work to the point of neglecting her family and personal well-being, ultimately resulting in her being fired.

This low point led Payne to volunteer at a local high school, helping in video and TV production classes, which rejuvenated her spirit and led to an unexpected opportunity. A WDBJ 7 News station employee noticed her potential and helped her get a job as a production assistant, a position she had no prior experience in. This opportunity marked the start of her ascent within the station, where she worked her way up to become a morning anchor.
