Nazy Javid is an emmy-nominated evening news anchor with North Coast News at 6 and 11 p.m. on KAEF ABC 23 and 10 p.m. on KBVU FOX 28. She was most recently recognized by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with an emmy nomination for her coverage of the Camp Fire, during which her own family narrowly escaped with their lives, losing their home in the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California state history.
Nazy began her broadcast journalism career as a reporter in the San Francisco market for The Bay Area’s KFTY TV50 in 2005. During several years there, she hosted three half-hour shows called Your Turn, TV50 Marketplace and Dining Out with Nazy. She worked as a dayside general assignment reporter and an evening headline news/weather/traffic anchor.
Prior to that, Nazy attended the University of California Davis, graduating with a bachelor of arts degree, double majoring in pre-law Political Science and Communications, with a double minor in Theatre and Dance.
Nazy first made her debut as a reporter/anchor on DCTV/AGTV, the local TV and campus news stations in Davis at UCD. Following that, she was accepted into an internship program through UCDC, serving as a junior reporter for Tribune Broadcasting at White House briefings, Senate hearings and Capitol pressers.
Nazy went on to study law for two years California Southern Law School, but her passion for journalism persisted. She subsequently relocated from Los Angeles back to Northern California, joining North Coast News TV as an anchor/reporter in 2016, again doing what she passionately loves — being a good listener, covering local court cases, reporting breaking news, advocating for you and telling your amazing stories with empathy.
Since joining the North Coast News team, Nazy has been actively involved in the community, participating and serving as an emcee for many events and organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club, Chamber of Commerce, Relay for Life, Hoops and Heroes and many more. She enjoys opportunities that allow her to connect with the community, meet new people and develop friendships along the way. In her free time, Nazy hosts a local podcast and is a Zumba Fitness instructor.
The Persian-American journalist is also highly active on social media, making a daily effort to connect with her viewers on an authentic level.
