Victoria Saha joined 8 News Now as an MMJ reporter in March of 2021. She grew up in Astoria, New York, a bustling and diverse area, and graduated from Quinnipiac University in 2017, where she was also a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority.
Victoria embarked on her career in journalism as a Multi-Media Reporter and Weekend Anchor in central Wisconsin for three years, where she also became a “cheese head” and felt like she couldn’t get her hands on enough cheese (Wisconsinites can relate).
During her time in Wisconsin, she was able to cover various high-profile national stories. Her career took a shift when she was reporting on the disappearance of Jayme Closs. After 88 days in captivity, Closs was found being held captive by the man who had murdered her parents. Reporting on this story, Victoria was among the group of journalists, including national network reporters, who were covering and reporting the details of the investigation. It was during her work on this case that Victoria realized how even small-town stories could have an impact on the nation.
Another well-noted national story that Victoria covered was the reunion and follow-up stories of identical twin sisters Audrie and Gracie, who had been separated at birth. It was a story that sparked a waved of emotion across the country, and Victoria’s coverage of this made it to ABC’s Good Morning America.
Victoria is excited about her recent career move to the west coast and is looking forward to reporting on this side of the country. Being from New York City, she feels she has a taste of home with the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas and the never-ending choices of restaurants. Speaking of food, her favorite thing to eat is pineapple pizza with white alfredo sauce (no judgments, please), but Victoria is always looking for food suggestions for restaurants and bakeries.
Victoria has a twin sister and an older brother. She is proud of her Indian and Bangladeshi roots and is looking forward to interacting with the Southeast Asian community in Las Vegas.
When she is not working, you can find her at a local restaurant or at the dog park with her shepherd rescue named Rubble. If you have any story ideas or simply want to say hi, feel free to reach out to Victoria on her social media accounts listed above or email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
