During her local news broadcast, a US reporter came out as a transgender woman.

On the same day that she legally changed her name, Nora JS Reichardt, a multitalented journalist for ABC US’ Local 5 News in Des Moines, Iowa, reintroduced herself to the neighbourhood.

“I didn’t know if there was a place and a space for me to do this sort of work that I’ve really come to love and enjoy, while also getting to be myself while I do it,” she said during her segment.

The 24-year-old woman revealed that although she had considered her gender identity since high school, she had never been able to express it because she had grown up in a remote location and in a time when society was less accepting of gender than it is now.

According to Reichardt, she became aware that something was wrong when she began her reporting career and found it difficult to “connect” with the subject of her stories, according to the New York Post.

She began hormonal treatments and the medical transition in September 2021.

“There was a decent span of time where everyone in my life functionally knew me as Nora, except for the viewers at home,” Reichardt said.
