Cherri Gregg is the community affairs reporter for KYW Newsradio 1060.
Gregg joined KYW Newsradio as a staff reporter in December 2010. From the start, she focused on community and legal affairs, social justice, and grassroots issues of concern to residents of Philadelphia and the surrounding area.
As a licensed attorney with eight years’ experience, Gregg puts her law degree to work providing analysis and extensive coverage on many highly publicized community legal issues.
In 2012, Gregg spent months covering the implementation of Pennsylvania’s voter ID law. She traveled to Harrisburg for a two-week trial and sat in on arguments before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, filing reports for both KYW Newsradio and CBS 3 Eyewitness News.
In addition, Gregg was at the polls during both the 2012 April primary and on Election Day, reporting live on voter turnout and the status of the Commonwealth’s “soft rollout” procedures for the voter ID law.
Gregg reported on the US Supreme Court’s ruling concerning the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act, and has provided analysis and coverage of community legal issues that include same-sex marriage, immigration reform, and juvenile justice.
In 2013, Gregg traveled to Washington, DC to cover the second historic inauguration of President Barack Obama, reporting live from the steps of the US Capitol.
Cherri Gregg believes in highlighting diverse perspectives, positive people, and cultural events in the area. In 2013, she created and produced an original ten-day “Black History Month” series for KYW Newsradio, titled “Philadelphia Gamechangers.” The series highlighted individuals and organizations making a positive impact in the area’s African-American community.
Before KYW Newsradio, Gregg worked as a freelance multimedia journalist. She practiced law full time from 2002 until 2010 at top Am Law 100 law firms in Atlanta and Philadelphia.
Gregg holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University, a Juris Doctor degree from Howard University School of Law, and a Master of Journalism degree (summa cum laude) from Temple University’s College of Communications and Theater, where she received the Louis Schiller Journalism Award in 2010 and the Meredith-Cronkite Fellowship in 2011.
Cherri Gregg is on the executive board of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists, and is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar and the Georgia Bar. In 2013 she was named among the NAACP’s most influential black women in the Philadelphia area.
Cherri believes in living with passion, and is frequently asked to moderate and speak on panels, emcee events, and give speeches on how to put one’s dreams into action.
And if you see her on the dance floor, don’t be surprised. Cherri and her husband Kevin are known to “cut a rug” at a good party. They also enjoy movies, jazz, and experiencing new adventures.
