She moved on from there in 2014 and started working as the host of ‘This Morning’ after she joined the WCCO-TV station. It didn’t take a long time for her to be promoted from feature reporter to anchor, in fact, this happened in her first year on the job. She built strong relationships with civic businesses, PR professionals, and community leaders from there.

While dedicating herself to her job in Dallas, Ali quickly became a prized journalist and colleague within the group and a trusted digital and public relations advisor to the executive team.
At WAVY-TV in Hampton Roads, Lucia served as an anchor and multimedia journalist who was always bold enough to get behind the camera and run her own interview and sports highlight. She even carried out more honorable duties and was also sent out to cover breaking news and hurricanes.
