The Fly Widow

Jul 4, 2022

On this week’s episode I am joined by @charissegibsonwwltv. I truly enjoyed this conversation about NORMALIZING grief. She isn’t a widow, but she shares her grief journey and advocates for mental health.


Charisse Gibson is a National Edward R. Murrow and Emmy award-winning Journalist, Producer, and Evening News Anchor at WWL-TV in New Orleans, LA.

Her latest project “The Talk: A Hard Conversation About Race in America” was the winner of both a regional and national Edward R Murrow Award for Excellence in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. “The Talk”, done after the murder of George Floyd, was written, produced, and hosted by Charisse Gibson and filmed by photojournalist Derek Waldrip. It centers on conversations many Black parents have with their children at a certain age on how to remain safe in America. The documentary opened itself up to a series that continues today.

Charisse is a proud HBCU graduate of Southern University A&M College in Baton Rouge, LA. She is also an active member of the National Association of Black Journalists, recently (2022) voted President of the New Orleans Association of Black Journalists.
