More Details about Uma Pemmaraju

Born in India in 1958, Pemmaraju was raised in Texas, where she began her TV career. She also worked at local stations in Baltimore, Maryland, and Boston, Massachusetts (where she was an anchor at WBZ-TV), before relocating to New York, where Fox News is based.

Pemmaraju presented programs on Fox News, including Fox News Now and Fox On Trends. She temporarily departed, the network claims, and then came back as an anchor in 2003. Bloomberg News was another employer of Pemmaraju, according to CBS News Boston.

Pemmaraju’s family had told him that she was a “great spirit and pioneer,” according to WBZ-TV presenter David Wade, who posted about this on Twitter.

I’m a conduit to assist other people, Pemmaraju said of her media job to The Boston Globe in 1993. I’m trying not to be too nostalgic. But I’m all for it. I want to utilize my fame to better the lives of others and to advance necessary causes.
