Gatini Tinsley – Anchor/Reporter

Gatini Tinsley joins WBKB-11 from Detroit, Michigan. She is the type of multimedia journalist who escapes the computer to hit the streets and knock on doors in pursuit of a story. Her favorite thing about the job is “being in the field reporting, where anything can happen and everyday is new. It’s the ultimate thrill ride for a journalist.” The thirst to get to the essence of the story is displayed through the news packages she produces, the footage she captures and the way she shapes the story through the edit.

Gatini began her career as an intern at WDIV Local 4 News, where amidst the hustle of a local news operation she called in beat checks at the assignment desk.

Following that, she jumped to WILX Channel 10 news in Lansing. After her internship ended she began reporting news for public access station Community Media Network Television.

This native Detroiter earned her Bachelor of Science in Media Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Arts from Rochester College. She has a diploma in video production from Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts. Additionally, Gatini studied comparative journalism in Europe and holds two certifications in Public Access Television.
