South Carolina native Allissa Young joined the WFXG FOX54 team in August of 2022 as a Multimedia Journalist.

Allissa graduated in 2022 from Coker University with a Bachelor of Arts degree. She double majored in Communication and Psychology Counseling and earned a minor in Marketing and a specialization in African American Studies.

During her time at CU, she interned at WPDE ABC15. She learned the ins and out of every position in the newsroom, from behind the scenes to in front of the camera. Allissa had the opportunity to interview members of the community and attend various events.

Allissa always knew that she wanted to be a journalist since she was a little girl. It all started for her when she was asked to be a part of her school’s news show and she was passionate about it ever since.

Allissa is excited to call the CSRA home and is looking forward to making an impact on the community.
