Vickie Newton


Vickie Newton, anchor for Soul of the South's Evening News, has been called the "consummate professional" and "a small town girl who is living her dream."  Both descriptions are accurate for the veteran journalist who has worked in television news for over 25 years.  Vickie is an Arkansas native who has worked as a reporter and later anchor in Little Rock, Detroit, Atlanta and for 11 years, the top rated anchor in the St. Louis market at KMOV-TV.  Winner of numerous awards for not only her journalistic endeavors but her community involvement, Vickie is happy to be back in Arkansas and having the opportunity to work as a member of the groundbreaking Soul of the South News Division.   Vickie will also be making history, becoming the first African-American woman to anchor a nationally broadcast, daily television newscast.  But for Vickie, making history is nothing new and we're proud that this latest step in her extraordinary career is with Soul of the South Television.
