Jasmine Norwood is thrilled to be living and reporting in the nation’s capital again. She was born and raised in San Diego, moved to D.C. to attend Howard University, and quickly fell in love with the area.

Jasmine joined DCW News at 10p in May 2016. She comes to Washington D.C., from Richmond, Virginia, where she worked as a reporter at WTVR on an Emmy-winning morning show. Prior to Richmond, Jasmine spent a couple years reporting in South Bend, Indiana and Benton Harbor, Michigan, where she broke major stories that lead to federal investigations into local government and the allocation of funds. While in the Midwest, Jasmine also earned an Emmy nomination for her coverage of a convicted killer’s escape from prison.

Jasmine has a passion for helping others, and strives to be a voice for the voiceless, through journalism.

In the summer, you can almost always find Jasmine by a pool or on her way to the nearest beach. Her family always jokes, she learned to swim before she could walk.

Growing up, Jasmine swam on competitive swim teams for 10 years. She made history as the first African American to train and compete with the San Diego Sweetwater Dolphins, a nationally competitive synchronized swim team.

When she’s not working to make a difference in the community or mentoring young girls, Jasmine is working towards her goal of opening a swimming school for underprivileged children.

Jasmine enjoys baking gluten-free treats, practicing yoga, traveling, and spending time with her family and friends.

She lives in Prince George’s County, Maryland with her husband and their pup, Bella.
