TraLanenia Reeves is a multimedia journalist with years of experience producing solid news content at the local, national, and international level. She currently works in the Washington, D.C., metro area producing a national weekly news magazine show for Sinclair Broadcasting Group, Inc. TraLanenia started her career in radio before switching channels to television. From producing daily morning news in a major U.S. city she advanced to producing content for a leading media company that reaches approximately 18% of U.S. TV households. Under her leadership, the morning report transformed into a fresh, forward-looking and compelling offer. TraLanenia transitioned to producing in-depth news programming when she joined a team of journalists for the launch of an international media network tailored towards an American audience. During her tenure, TraLanenia played a key role in establishing a prime-time daily discussion show driven by social media. The unique mix of traditional broadcast and digital media provided a platform that allowed viewers in some 50 million television homes to engage in real time with the program through social media. She produced a discussion on the role of social media and gang violence that was recognized by the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) as a 2014 Salute to Excellence Award finalist in the Public Affairs category. Another episode she produced - focused on the decline in the honeybee population - was the network’s highest-rated program on its initial air date. When not working, TraLanenia enjoys transforming hidden treasures discovered at salvage yards; feeding her desire for excitement and adventure through thrill-seeking​ activities and giving back to the community through clean-up and volunteer opportunities.

For the last ten years, I’ve diligently worked to hone my skills as a journalist. This decade has helped set the groundwork for a career highlighted by solid news coverage at the local, national and international level. Learning to be proactive working alone and in a group, making executive decisions under pressure and maintaining control in breaking news situations all contributed to my rise as a leader in the newsroom.  It’s my passion for storytelling, understanding of the elements of news and ability to lead a team in delivering quality content that make me a strong leader in the newsroom. This site is designed to offer you a better understanding of my work and the value I place on every aspect of the production process.
