Taj Simmons is a multimedia journalist who joined WRTV in August 2023.
You might have to stay up a little late to watch him in action, since he mainly reports for the 11pm newscasts.
The Oakland, California native is not a Hoosier by birth, but he is excited to learn all about Central Indiana and tell the stories of the people who make this state feel like home.
Taj brings nearly a decade of TV experience to the WRTV newsroom, most recently with two years at WHO-TV in Des Moines as a reporter and weekend anchor.
While in Iowa, Taj covered numerous presidential candidates on the Iowa Caucus campaign trail, handled extreme weather such as snowstorms and tornadoes, and became a trusted voice for viewers throughout the Hawkeye State.
Prior to his stint in Iowa, Taj reported for WSLS-TV in Roanoke, Virginia and KTTC-TV in Rochester, Minnesota.
Taj graduated from DePaul University (the one with an L in Chicago, not the one with a W) with a double major in Journalism and Media Cinema Studies.
