Bofta Yimam is an award-winning journalist with more than ten years of experience. She has been honored for her work nearly every year in her career, including a Regional Emmy award and the prestigious Edward R. Murrow award. She is the first Ethiopian-American newscaster to receive an Emmy for her work.
Yimam is a dynamic motivational speaker who mixes high energy storytelling and strong content to EMPOWER people. As a journalist and television personality, she understands the importance of catering the MESSAGE to your particular group. Using her demonstrative abilities and natural charisma, Yimam effectively engages your audience to help SELF-MOTIVATE them toward their goals.
During her career, Yimam has reported on everything from a law firm explosion caused by a disgruntled client to a police chief who bought off voters to win his election. She covered the gubernatorial race in Atlanta and tackled Federal court cases, including a local ponzi couple charged in connection with a million-dollar investment fraud.
She's shared stories of survival and loss after EF-4 twisters, followed the execution of a triple-murderer and investigated massage parlors involved in possible sex trades, including trafficking of young girls.
Some of her investigative pieces have led to policy changes, used as tools for law enforcement training and helped police lock up wanted criminals. She most recently won a Midsouth Regional Emmy for excellence in "Continuing Coverage." Her report led to Governor Bill Haslam signing a law to keep convicted aggravated rapists in prison for their full sentence.
Yimam is a graduate of the University of Maryland.
When Bofta’s not reporting, she’s hosting her online health fitness group and working to scratch off destinations on her bucket list. She’s swum with dolphins in Mexico, climbed a mountain (not planned) to reach a remote Ethiopian monastery, jumped off a 35-foot-high Jamaican cliff and backpacked twice in Europe.
