About

Maira Ansari joined WAVE 3 in February 2007 as a general assignment reporter, and anchored the weekend Sunrise show for several months. You can see her reporting through the week and during the weekend, anchoring the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts. 

She's thrilled to call Kentucky her new home. Maira has lived in Illinois her entire life and grew up in a small town in southern Illinois.

Before moving to Louisville, Maira worked as the Morning and Midday anchor at WICD-NewsChannel 15 in Champaign, IL. Maira enjoyed participating in community service while spending time in east-central Illinois. Everything from the American Diabetes Association, to the Girl Scouts, to participating in a corn eating contest! 

Maira started her television career off in Springfield, IL, where she was the city beat reporter. Before that, she was an intern at WCIA, the CBS affiliate in Springfield. During her college career, Maira got a taste of what television journalism was all about. Everything from working in her college newsroom, to interning in Los Angeles, California at the entertainment new magazine show "EXTRA," and traveling abroad to study television in London, England. It was a fantastic experience that she says she was thrilled to enjoy.

Maira graduated from the Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois. She got her Bachelors in the top rated Radio/Television program. She also received a minor in Marketing and Speech Communications. In 2002 Maira received her Master's degree from the University of Illinois at Springfield.

Maira has also traveled to more than 12 countries and speaks several different languages. She enjoys culture, great food, and fantastic friends!  But, most of all, spending time with her cat PhiPhi.
