After more than six years at WXYZ (Channel 7) in Southfield, anchor Ameera David announced Thursday she’ll be signing off to her hometown later this month to return to Washington, D.C.

David, an Emmy-winning journalist, has anchored the weekend evening newscasts and led flagship coverage of the station’s feature initiative, “Two Americas.”

She began at WXYZ in 2017 as a specialty reporter on consumer-based issues through series like “The Rebound Detroit,” “Don’t Waste Your Money” and “Taking Action For You.”

Her last day on air is June 21.

“First and foremost, I want to express my deepest gratitude to this incredible community I have had the privilege to be a part of in Detroit. The warmth, kindness, and support I have received over the years has truly shaped my life in ways I cannot adequately express,” she wrote. “From the friendships made to the memories created, this chapter will always be thought of as nothing short of remarkable.”

David launched her TV journalism career working at NBC News’ D.C. bureau where she worked as a White House producer, assignment desk manager and production assistant.
