Today while watching CNN when I saw this anchor and heard the way she was speaking, I thought there was something wrong with her throat. Whose bright idea was to put a brit accented lady on a major American news channel. Is there any shortage of black female anchors in US that they had to catch one all the way across the Atlantic.
Anyway, Naamua Delaney is a face of CNN.com Live, the network’s live, multi-stream video service. Delaney guides users through news reports, anchors “Now in the News,” a fast-paced hourly Web- and wireless-exclusive news update, and provides briefings on CNN/U.S. and Headline News about the most popular stories on CNN.com.
Delaney began her career as an entertainment reporter in 1997 and guess where? Of all the places with MTN in Winnipeg, Canada. Continuing her love for Canada, in 1999, she joined CTV in Vancouver as an entertainment reporter and then moved to WFTX in Boston in 1999, where she was an entertainment/lifestyles reporter. Delaney joined WNYW in New York in 2003 as an entertainment and lifestyle reporter and was the recipient of an Emmy in 2005 for the story “Radioman.” Before joining CNN.com, Delaney was the host of a daily talk show with the NBC network’s iVillage Live.
Delaney obtained her law degree from University College at the University of London.
However you will be surprised to know that she is neither from US or Canada. Born in Kent County, England, Naamua graduated with an L.L.B law degree from University College London. She then traveled to Vancouver, Canada on the Student Work Abroad Program, and began working first for a local newspaper, and then for a music/entertainment show as a writer and co-host. In 1996 Naamua landed her first broadcasting job with the Manitoba Television Network in Winnipeg, Canada. She then spent two years as an entertainment reporter and host at Vancouver Television, part of the Canadian Television Network.
