Rhonda walker is an award-winning American Journalist that works as the co-anchor in the morning segment at WDIV-Local 4 news.
Apart from being an employee, she has her foundation- “Rhonda Walker Foundation,” which focuses on empowering women. This busy woman juggles her life from being a wife to the founder to a co-anchor, including the struggles of her first marriage.
Her First Husband, Reason For Divorce?
Rhonda walker was married to Derrick Walker who is an American football player. As the player was famous from the beginning, Rhonda got exposed to fame as well. The exposure motivated the tabloids to keep a close eye on their marriage.
However, not much was known about their married life as they both kept it within the walls of their home.
Everything was seemingly going well until, in 2012, the co-anchor revealed that they had divorced. She broke this news at the Women’s luncheon on October 2012. She also said that it was quite painful for her to go through it as she thought she had the “happy ending.”
Finally A Happy Ending? Marriage With Jason Drumheller
Growing through a divorce was hard on Walker, but she never gave up on love. Jason a wealth manager, did not know who the famous co-anchor was. He describes her as a beautiful, elegant woman walking through the halls to his colleagues She thought of giving her love life another chance when she went on a blind date with Jason in 2014.
Their first date was like a breath of fresh air to the 53-year-old. She recalls how they sat that evening for hours talking and sharing laughs. This gave birth to a new fairy tale romance.
Drumheller’s first appearance to the world as the co-anchors lover was on 2016 when Rhonnda shared a picture of them together. And then the whole world got to witness the love these two shared.
The activist later in 2018 surprised her fans with her engagement announcement and Drumheller was not her boyfriend anymore but her fiance. This was also the day when Jason had his birthday. The moment must have been cherry on top for the partners, the birthday being the cherry of course. Walker explained this moment as-
“It was the biggest surprise of my life,”
After one year of engagement, the co-anchor became a bride for the second time in her life, this time only more precious as she walked down the aisle to her not-to-be husband, Jason. The two shared their vows and got married.
This really was a breathtaking wedding and we cannot ever get enough of the pictures.
A Giver: Venture Outside Her Career
The 53-year-old is not just a co-anchor. She also shares a deep passion for women’s empowerment. Walker has a foundation named, “The Rhonda Walker Foundation” which focuses on the “Girls Into Women” program. Their foundation provides a 5-year support and empowerment program for teens until they graduate from school.
