The Lincolnian is highlighting ’15 Lincoln alumna, Nicole Webb. On Wednesday, October 25th,2017, Webb aired her first ever docu-special, titled “Hooked: Delmarva’s Drug Crisis,” as the show’s executive producer with WBOC News, a CBS-affiliate based out of Salisbury, MD. The special reveals how the epidemic started on Delmarva, what is fueling it, who it is affecting, and the solutions to the problem — interviewing those in recovery, addicts, and families who have lost their loved ones to the opioid and heroin epidemic. Webb is currently the producer for WBOC News at 6 — the station’s flagship newscast and the leading evening newscast on Delmarva.
During her time at Lincoln, Webb was elected Vice President of External Affairs during the 2014-2015 Student Government Association tenure. She also founded and led Lincoln’s chapter of National Association of Black Journalists. After obtaining her bachelor’s in Mass Communications and her master’s at American University in Washington, D.C., she returned as an adjunct professor, teaching the Lincolnian Practicum and Advanced television Production. In addition to her position in higher education and production, Webb is the founder and blogger of The #RibLifeJourney, an online site where she shares her journey with Christ as a milennial celibate single woman. Webb published her first book titled Second Chances, imprints, and a chapbook of redemption — a poetry book that can be purchased on Amazon.com.
