Antionette Lee

Antionette Lee joined the KYW Newsradio team as a desk assistant in 2017.

The North Carolina native graduated from NC State University in 2014 with a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology. Shortly afterwards, she accepted a job teaching english as a second language in Shanghai, China. Lee says it was in Asia where she found the courage to pursue her passion for journalism. After a year living abroad, that passion led her to Philadelphia where she completed a M.J. at Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communications.

Lee is a member of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists (PABJ), the Na​tional Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and Phi Sigma Pi. When she’s not feeding her adoration for travel, music, and culture--you can find her snapping pictures around the city.​
