Asia Wilson joined the WSPA team in January 2020, as the Anderson Bureau reporter. She couldn’t be more thrilled to be back in her home state—the Carolinas.
Prior to her move back, the Salisbury, North Carolina native spent two years as a multi-media journalist for Southwest Georgia’s #1 station—WALB News 10.
Asia served as the station’s crime, court, and investigations reporter. She covered dozens of cases, and some of those gained national attention from major networks and publications across the country.
One of her largest cases was the Tara Grinstead murder. It’s said to be the largest case file in Georgia’s GBI history. She was also the first to report about a proposed HBCU bill that was a big talker in Georgia’s senate.
Asia also covered President Trump’s arrival to South Georgia after Hurricane Michael ripped through that area in 2018.
Before reporting in GA, Asia was an award-winning media relations professional and was named as one of Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s Top 30 Successful Professionals Under 30 Years Old and a Woman of Influence.
She served as a communications specialist for a government nonprofit, where her work was featured in local magazines and on the desk of North Carolina’s governor.
Asia was also a news contributor for WCCB Charlotte and an independent contractor for many college and professional sports teams.
The Lenoir-Rhyne University graduate also worked with ESPN in college and has been featured in two independent films.
When she’s not reporting, Asia loves spending time with family, watching sports, giving back to her community and mentoring young children. Asia loves people and connecting with those in the community.
