Investigative Reporter Tisha Thompson Joins WRC

As part of a renewed commitment to investigative reporting, NBC owned-and-operated WRC in Washington, DC, has named Tisha Thompson to their investigative unit.

Thompson joins WRC from rival station WTTG, the Fox O&O in Washington, DC, where she was the lead investigative reporter for four years.

“Tisha has a proven record of success that has exposed corruption, protected taxpayers and generated change,” said Camille Edwards, WRC’s vice president of news.  “She is the perfect person to help us revitalize our investigative unit.”

Although Thompson’s first day at WRC was yesterday, her connection with the station can be traced back to her childhood — her mother, Lea Thompson, spent more than 20 years at WRC as an anchor and investigative reporter before joining NBC’s “Dateline.”
