Phyllis Armstrong

The joy of cooking became a part of her life when Phyllis Armstrong was a child learning her way around the kitchen with her mother and grandmother. Her retirement from a demanding career in broadcast news has given her time to write about cooking and some of today's talented chefs.

Her personal column, "Family, Food and Friends," was featured in the online news publication, the Colesville Patch. Phyllis continues to write restaurant profiles for the Maryland community newspaper.

Articles she has written on African American chefs, vintners, military achievers and entrepreneurs appear on line in the women's magazine, Her memories of cooking with her mother and other important women in her life are included in "Black Mothers: Songs of Praise & Celebration," a book published by Kristin Clark Taylor in May of 2000.

During her long career as a broadcast journalist, Phyllis reported on-air for television news stations in three major cities.  After earning a Master's degree in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University; Medill School of Journalism, the Denver, Colorado native joined the CBS owned operation at WBBM-TV as a news writer.  One year later, she moved to Memphis, Tennessee to take her first job as a news reporter at WMC-TV. From there, Phyllis became a news anchor and reporter at KSDK-TV in St. Louis, Missouri and WUSA-TV in Washington, DC.

Phyllis has received numerous awards for her reporting and writing.  They include Gracie Awards from the Foundation of American Women in Radio and Television (AWRT) and Emmy awards from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). In 2006, she was inducted into the NATAS Silver Circle for her 25 years of outstanding contributions to the broadcast community in the Washington, DC region.
