Makenzi Henderson was just named TV News Anchor of the Year for 2015 from the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas. She won second place for TV News Anchor of the Year from RTDNAC in 2013. In 2014, she won second place in News Feature from RTDNAC for her story on Bagpipe Lessons at CFCC. Makenzi joined WWAY as morning anchor and reporter in April 2013. Shortly after, she moved up to the evenings to anchor the 5:00, 5:30, 6:00 and 11:00 p.m. newscasts on WWAY, and the 10:00 on the Cape Fear CW. Makenzi has more than eight years of experience in broadcasting and has always lived in cold weather climates. So, no snow at Christmas is still very strange to her, but she doesn't miss the bitter cold! Makenzi began her career as a one-man-band bureau reporter for KOTA-TV in Spearfish, South Dakota. After a year of driving her own car, plus shooting, writing and editing her own stories, she moved to work at the main station in Rapid City, South Dakota. That's when she added weekend anchor and producer to her reporting duties, and earned a first place Associated Press Award for her story on Greenpeace protesters who climbed Mount Rushmore. Two years after that, she moved to Duluth, Minnesota, to work for FOX 21 News as the main 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. anchor and producer. A year later, she moved to Davenport, Iowa, to work for INN. The company outsources news to TV stations across the country. Makenzi produced and anchored up to five newscasts a day with local content from reporters at those stations. When Makenzi isn’t at work, she loves to hike, ski, read, workout, paint, go to the beach, and hang with her dogs, Stella and Marte.
