Hall of Fame News Anchor Regina Mobley signs with Exit Realty Central
A native of Norfolk, Virginia, Ms. Mobley graduated from Granby High School in 1979 and went on
to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications from Norfolk State University in 1983.
Regina started her career in broadcast journalism as an anchor and general assignment reporter with
four local radio stations and in 1985 transitioned to television as a reporter for the local CBS affiliate,
WTKR-TV. There she spent six years as a beat reporter covering a wide range of issues including
crime, courts, and the military – the region’s primary employer and economic foundation. On the
crime beat, she covered numerous stories to include the introduction of crack-cocaine to the streets
of Hampton Roads. Her stories chronicled the resultant trail of violence and destruction of families
and neighborhoods, often representing the voice of concern for her community.
Other noteworthy career highlights include her March 2011 interview with President Barack Obama,
the first-ever of a sitting President by a local news reporter. Not only did she provide coverage for
the President to speak on critical issues on education, she also presented perspectives from the
political opposition as the President was seeking re-election. Regina also secured the President’s first
public statements in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear power plant in Japan.
Ms. Mobley set a precedent that will surely be exploited henceforth by other local broadcasters.

Emmy awards, won gold in the 2012 Hampton Roads Magazine Reader’s Choice Award for Best
Female TV News Anchor, and was inducted into the Virginia Communications Hall of Fame in early
