Felicia Bolton is originally from Dallas, Texas and is proud to make Memphis her new home. She currently works as the weekend anchor and weekday reporter for WMC Action News 5. Her passion for broadcast journalism ignited at an early age while attending an advanced immersion dual college credit program called Richland Collegiate High School of Mathematics, Science and Engineering. During that time, she participated in the high school newscast, RCH-TV. As a member of the first graduating class, she laid the foundation for her career by earning a distinguished high school diploma and an Associate of Science degree.

She advanced in her studies by studying abroad at the Latin American University of Science and Technology in San José, Costa Rica. While in Costa Rica, she lived with a host family and spent her spare time building houses in poverty-stricken areas.

During her college career, Felicia grew in her broadcast experience by interning at WFAA-TV and KTVT-TV in Dallas. In addition to this, she worked as the online content producer for “The Shortcast” and an entertainment reporter for D210-TV. Within months after graduation, she worked fulltime as an anchor / reporter for KOSA-TV in Odessa, Texas. Prior to coming to Memphis, she was the morning anchor for KTVE-TV (NBC 10) and KARD-TV (FOX 14) in West Monroe, Louisiana.
