Hey there!

My name is Julia Avant and I am a news reporter covering Troy and Montgomery news. I was born and raised in Macomb Michigan, a county only 20 minutes from Detroit. I grew up training as a competitive dancer and spent time with my loud and small Italian family.

Graduated from the University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE) in 2021. I studied Communications and Informational Sciences and spent all four years at WVUA 23 News.

In 2021, I anchored for the FOX station in Huntsville and enjoyed my time investigating the Casey and Vicky White chase, along with meeting the Governor.

Now, the capital is my next-door neighbor working at WSFA.

When I'm not at work, I spend time with my husband and our baby chocolate lab, BO! we enjoy watching movies, eating good food, shopping, going to the beach and spending time with family.

If you want to get in touch with me, you can email me julia.smith@wsfa.com
