Zinhle Essamuah            

Anchor, NowThis Media

Zinhle Essamuah is the Host and Correspondent on NowThis News’ original daily evening show, KnowThis on Facebook Watch. KnowThis on NowThis gives a quick, but detailed rundown of all the trending news you need to know — from politics to viral news videos — on Facebook and Instagram. KnowThis consistently outperforms competitors including CNN, Fox News, and ABC. Prior to this role you could find her chasing stories around the nation as the Political Correspondent on NowThis Morning, a live morning news show on Facebook Watch.

Essamuah also covers breaking and long-form news stories around the country with a focus on the politics and culture beat — interviewing politicians from Bernie Sanders to celebrities like Serena Williams. Most recently, she released an investigation on conditions of confinement for undocumented immigrants at private detention facilities, particularly in non-border towns.

In 2017, Essamuah opened NowThis’ Washington, D.C. bureau, championing on-the-ground live coverage of major protests, and reporting on the history-making candidates throughout the 2018 election. She holds a Master’s in Media, Strategic Communication and Documentary Filmmaking from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
