NOW LIVE: Eyewitness News

Ukee Washington

Ukee Washington anchors Eyewitness News This Morning on CBS 3 and The CW Philly with Erika von Tiehl and is co-host with Pat Ciarrocchi of Talk Philly, CBS 3’s new noon lifestyle program, airing weekdays at noon.

Washington (born Ulysses Samuel Washington III) joined the Channel 3 news team as a sports anchor in July 1986. In 1996, Washington moved over to the news desk as early morning and noon anchor.

Since that time, Washington has been front and center anchoring some of the region’s most memorable stories including the President’s Summit for America’s Future held in Philadelphia in 1997 and the Phillies World Series Celebration Parade in 2008. In addition, the versatile anchor’s assignments have run the gamut from hosting the Camden, New Jersey Mayoral debates to going behind bars to interview a high school classmate on death row.

Washington was raised in West Philadelphia and attended Dover High School in Delaware where he was a celebrated athlete. As a youngster, his other love was music. As a member of the Philadelphia Boys Choir’s “elite,” he traveled to Russia, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Denmark and Mexico to perform. Both experiences proved helpful in his broadcasting career as host of the station’s live telecasts of the Philadelphia Orchestra and his live coverage of the 1998 Winter Olympic Games from Nagano, Japan.

Prior to coming home to the Philadelphia area, Washington was a sports anchor at WBBH-TV in Fort Myers, Florida and at WSB-TV in Atlanta. Washington is a graduate of the University of Richmond. Today, he makes his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
