Julie Wright joined ABC7/WJLA-TV and NewsChannel 8 family in April 2015. You can catch her during week day morning’s on Good Morning Washington and on NewsChannel 8’s popular talk show Let’s Talk Live.
Julie is a native of Hampton Roads, Va., which still happens to be her favorite vacation destination. A self-proclaimed beach bum, if Julie’s not on your radio or on your TV there’s a 100 percent chance she’s soaking up the sun.
Julie left her hometown with a map (before fancy GPS units and cell phones) and found her way up I-95 to Baltimore where she became an airborne reporter in Baltimore. Within a year, she had been tapped to fly in the DMV. IN 1996, she moved to Washington DC to work for WTTG-TV’s Fox 5 morning news.
During the past 14 years in the DMV, Julie has been telling you where to and where not to go on a daily basis on radio and TV and has covered major events, including Congressional events and street closures, sporting events, inaugural events and of course the D.C. sniper attacks in 2002.
Julie isn’t one to slow down. In her spare time, or in her other life, she’s the sitting president of the D.C. chapter of SAG-AFTRA, she’s an avid runner, loves spending time with friends, and of course, worshiping the sun. Julie is an active resident of Gaithersburg where she loves to spend time with her true best friend, Beagle Bailey.
