Early this Fall, CBS3 added a local vocalist general assignment to the team.

Rahel Solomon is originally from West Philly and Drexel Hill. She joined the Eyewitness News Team from KCNC-TV, a CBS-owned station in Denver, where she worked for the past two years.

Solomon is credited with her coverage of the trial of 2012 Aurora theater shooter James Eagan Holmes and the massive flooding in Colorado in 2014. She was honored by the Colorado Association of Black Journalists’ as the 2015 Broadcast Journalist of the Year.

Before moving to Denver, Solomon worked as a multimedia journalist for WSAZ-TV in Charleston, West Virginia. But before moving to West Virginia, she started her career in broadcast as a production assistant, right here in Philly at NBC 10 WCAU-TV.

“In high school I worked for the school newspaper and the broadcast station. Reporting was my dream, but I didn’t always consider it a possibility. I am thrilled to return to Philadelphia”, Solomon said.

And although Solomon’s been gone for several years now, she’s received a very warm welcome from the City of Brotherly Love. “Everyone has been so welcoming to me.”

One of Solomon’s first assignments upon her return to Philadelphia was the groundbreaking ceremony of the Divine Loraine Hotel. “It was amazing to be able to cover that story, because the Divine Loraine Hotel is so iconic in Philadelphia.”

You can catch Solomon on CBS 3 Eyewitness News.
