WJLA’s Thuman Welcomes Wife to Newsroom

Thuman and Godfrey in 2008

You know what they say…the couple that reports together, stays together.  Okay, no one says that but we sure hope it’s the case for Scott Thuman and Autria Godfrey.  Married in 2008, the dynamic duo is now sharing both a home and newsroom since Godfrey joined her anchorman hubby at WJLA earlier this month.

After freelancing for Tribune, CBS Newspath and Foxnews Edge over the past couple of years, Godfrey landed a gig as a general assignment reporter for both ABC7 and NC8 where Thuman recently re-signed his contract as Senior Political Reporter and anchor.  Thuman tells FishbowlDC that he and Godfrey haven’t worked together before but have crossed paths in the field while covering events like President Obama’s inauguration, Pentagon’s 9/11 memorial ceremony, elections and recent package bombs at Maryland government facilities.

“As for working together…so far it’s great,”  Thuman said.  “Because our schedules almost never coincided, we often were just ships passing in the night.  While working in the same newsroom could be too close for comfort, it’s a real positive for us,”  Thuman concluded.

You can catch Scott anchoring “Good Morning Washington” from 4.30-7.00 a.m. or at 6.00 pm daily when he returns to cover politics.
