News 3 TODAY Anchor
Kim Gusby is a Savannah-bred, award-winning journalist with a knack for news and a love for our community. She joined the WSAV News 3 team in November 1993, making her the longest-serving morning news anchor in the area.
Kim grew up in the Historic Carver Village neighborhood and was educated in Chatham County’s public school system. She’s a proud graduate of Herschel V. Jenkins High School and the Savannah State College (now University) Upward Bound Program — an initiative that has had a profound impact on her life.
Kim received her undergraduate education at Georgia Southern University where she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Arts.
A “homegrown product,” Kim believes in giving back to her community. The mantra of her mentor, the late Erma Jean Mobley, has now become her way of life. “If I can help somebody, as I pass along, then my living shall not be in vain.” In 2019, Kim founded The Village Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance and supplies to college-bound high school seniors whose families have limited resources.
She currently sits on the Board of Directors for Brightside Child & Family Advocacy/CASA Savannah and is a regular participant in Savannah’s Eagle Outreach. She is also a member of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ).
Some of her honors and awards include 2019 Outstanding Georgia Citizen; 2017 Herschel V. Jenkins Hall of Fame Honoree; Georgia Southern University Black History Hall of Fame 2015; and 2015 NATAS Southeast Silver Circle Inductee.
Kim has won several AP and Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for her reports that document Black History in the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry. She is also the recipient of several community service awards.
Kim is blessed to be the mother of four incredible children, Whitney, Jasmine, Morgan, and Riche’ and “Glamma” of two gifted and talented granddaughters, Bailee and Brooklyn.
