During her time at News 10, Alia has covered a variety of stories that have impacted the Wabash Valley. A few of her favorites include covering the 2016 presidential election, President Donald Trump's rally in Terre Haute, as well as interviewing former candidate Bernie Sanders.

She loves hanging out with family and friends, football (Go Ravens!), being involved within her sorority (Alpha Kappa Alpha), traveling, trying out different restaurants/foods and being an auntie!
Alia also enjoys having a second home within the Wabash Valley. If you have any story ideas, or just want to say hello, drop her a line anytime!
