At NewsHour, Mahlia produced regular reports from Capitol Hill and the White House on everything from the midterm elections to dairy farmers impacted by tariffs. Before NewsHour, Mahlia freelanced for AJ+.
Mahlia received a bachelor’s in English from Howard University and master’s in journalism from U.C. Berkley. A native of North Las Vegas, she now lives in Alexandria with her two succulent plants, enjoys cooking and is trying to perfect her granny’s black-eyed peas recipe – without the benefit of measurements or written instructions. She’s also a die-hard San Antonio Spurs fan.
Mahlia will report to Peter Stevenson. Please join us in welcoming her on Sept. 9.
