A graduate of Florida State, Fadia Patterson has traveled far and wide following her broadcasting dreams. After spending time reporting in Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee, Fadia is excited to finally be back on the east coast. Fadia joined the Spectrum News 1 Buffalo team in January of 2018 and, every evening since, has been delivering the latest news to communities across the area.

As an active member of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Fadia has served on the national and local level to mentor young journalists of color. Dedicated to helping others, Fadia also writes her own blog titled One Woman Bandit, which discusses the various techniques one can use to become a successful journalist.

When Fadia isn’t at the newsdesk, you can find her volunteering with various charities across the Buffalo area. In her downtime, this proud Seminole can be found rooting on her alma mater!
