Bakari Savage, Reporter, Central Florida News 13

Modetator Bio
Bakari Savage came to News 13 as reporter for Little Rock NBC affiliate KARK-TV. He made the jump from Monroe, La. CBS affiliate KNOE-TV. While there, Bakari was a multi-media journalist.

After three years in corporate America, Bakari Savage decided to follow his true passion and return to broadcast news. It’s a dream that he began nurturing years ago, during his participation in the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund High School Journalism Workshop at Clark Atlanta University. His dedication to this intense training program led him to receive the “Best Story” award. Bakari then pursued an array of internships at ABC (WBMA), Fox (WAGA), CONUS Communications/All News Channel, CBS (WCCO) and Hearst Entertainment. His duties ranged from researching and writing for entertainment and investigative news segments to coordinating interviews and satellite uplinks, as well as logging tapes.

Those experiences laid the foundation for him to join the team of (then) Primedia’s Channel One. He started off answering phones and eventually began writing popular features such as “Celebrity Birthday Finder” and “Presidential Perks” for its Webby Award-winning website.

Bakari also had the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam to research the murder of filmmaker Theo van Gogh, grandnephew of artist Vincent van Gogh, in relation to the release of “Submission,” a controversial film about the treatment of women in the Muslim world.

Born and raised in Birmingham, Ala., Bakari moved to Minnesota to study Political Science and Communication Studies at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. After graduation and some world travel, he relocated to California. Those travels endowed him with a wealth of knowledge
