Terrance Friday is an enthusiastic journalist with a passion for telling stories. He dreamed of becoming a journalist after discovering that he loved presenting current event assignments in the fourth grade. Terrance has been driven to make his dream a reality since that time. He loves to encourage others to peruse their ambitions as well.
The Minnesota native received his degree in Broadcast Journalism at Tougaloo College in his birth-state of Jackson, Mississippi. Throughout that time Terrance worked as an anchor/reporter for the campus based Harambee Television Network. He even got a glimpse of the future when he worked alongside WJTV News Channel 12. He made his television debut as a WJTV correspondent during the inauguration of President Barack Obama in 2009.
Terrance began his professional television career as a general assignment reporter at WABG-TV in Greenville, Mississippi. From there, he took on the role of anchor and reporter for WLOX-TV in Biloxi. Terrance covered various events throughout the Gulf Coast, including the devastation of Hurricane Isaac and the recovery efforts following Hurricane Katrina. Terrance also tagged along for a hurricane flight in Texas with a crew from Keesler Air Force Base. Terrance says one of his greatest experiences on the coast was a life changing conversation he had with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts and her mother, the late Mrs. Lucimarian Roberts.
Following severe weather in 2011, Terrance worked with FOX 6 WBRC in Birmingham, Alabama. Together they covered the storm damage and experiences of survivors there. Terrance also held down the anchor chair for FOX 47 News in Lansing, Michigan. He is thrilled to be back working in the magnolia state. His grandmother, Lillie Bell Friday, always said her favorite television station was WJTV News Channel 12. That’s part of why he says it’s a special honor to be here.
Terrance is represented by the Willinger Talent Agency in New York City. He works with various service organizations like The Boys and Girls Club and The Salvation Army Harbor Light, Minneapolis. He is also a member of The Kiwanis Club, The National Associated of Black Journalists, and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated.
