Efrem Graham is an award-winning journalist who came to CBN News from the ABC-owned and operated station in Toledo, Ohio. His most recent honor came as co-anchor of the newscast that earned the station’s morning news program its first Emmy Award.
Efrem was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, but his formal television and journalism career was born across the Hudson River in New York City. He began as an NBC Page and quickly landed opportunities to work behind-the-scenes in local news, network news, entertainment, and the network’s Corporate Communications Department. His work earned him the NBC Broadcast Fellowship and the DuPont Research Fellowship, which allowed him to study and receive his master's degree from the Columbia University Journalism School. He also holds a bachelor's degree in English Literature from the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.
Efrem moved from behind the camera when he relocated from New York City to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he juggled two full-time careers. By day, he taught journalism at Chattanooga State College. And by night, Efrem anchored and reported the news at the NBC affiliate, WRCB-TV.
While in Chattanooga, Efrem earned honors from the Tennessee Associated Press and the German Marshall Fellowship Program. The prestigious fellowship took Efrem on a month-long tour of European countries, where he studied the European Union and politics and cultures of Amsterdam, Brussels, Budapest, Lyon, and Paris. The fellowship experience fueled many of his lectures as a journalism instructor at Bowling Green State University.
Efrem is a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., and the National Association of Black Journalists.
Finally, and most importantly, Efrem is a loving husband to Kita. They are the proud parents of two children.
