Wendy Griffith

Wendy is a reporter with CBN News and the Anchor of Christian World News.

Wendy Griffith reports on a wide range of issues for CBN News and its Christian World News division. She also co-anchors Christian World News which airs on Friday evenings in the United States on the Trinity Broadcasting Network.

After a year as CBN's Congressional Correspondent on Capitol Hill, Wendy moved to the Virginia Beach Headquarters to concentrate on stories with a more spiritual emphasis. Wendy has traveled internationally covering stories like Billy Graham's Amsterdam 2000 Conference and the spiritual revival among the youth in England.

She began her television career at NBC affiliate KYEL-TV in Yuma, Arizona in 1987 after graduating from West Virginia University in 1986 with a B.S. in Journalism. She then went on to work in several television markets across the country as an anchor/reporter, including: NBC affiliate WCYB-TV in Bristol, Virginia; ABC affiliate WCHS-TV in Charleston, West Virginia; and NBC affiliate WTVO-TV in Rockford, Illinois.

While in Rockford, Wendy traveled to Russia for a special report on "Life after Communism" and the spiritual freedom many Russians are now able to enjoy. After nearly two years in Rockford, she returned to Charleston, her hometown and West Virginia's capitol city, to co-anchor the 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts for WCHS-TV.

Her position there opened the door to an opportunity to serve as press secretary and later special events coordinator to West Virginia Governor Cecil H. Underwood and First Lady Hovah Underwood. Her first week on the job was a "trial by flood" as West Virginia was declared a federal disaster area after massive flooding hit the Mountain State. Wendy and Governor Underwood spent a week assessing the damage by helicopter and talking to victims and reporters on the ground.

When not reporting, Wendy enjoys outdoor sports including hiking, skiing, and mountain biking.
