Early Life and Education: Growing up in USA
Darsha was raised in her birthplace by her Sri Lankan parents. She has three older sisters. She first attended an unspecified local high school from where she matriculated in 2001. Then enrolled into the University of California, Irvine, from where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in architecture. After that, she obtained a Master of Architecture degree.
Career: From architecture to journalism
There is no information as to what Darsha’s first job was, though she is known to have taken up an internship at KABC-TV for an unspecified amount of time. In July 2010, she obtained the position of broadcast reporter, based in Los Angeles, California, which she kept for over eight years. She then joined NBC Los Angeles in December 2018, and also became a broadcast journalist for NBC News, also based in Los Angeles. She is employed here nowadays as well, and she has a number of duties on her position, reporting, producing and managing live news segments for television and digital platforms. Among other attributes, has practical knowledge in digital brand management. She tends to take on complex duties and generally operates on a tight schedule. That said, she also constantly searches for sources that she can use to produce and present engaging content, mainly for the 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. newscasts, as well as digital ones. Since the company she now works for is considered an improvement, she now earns significantly more in salary than she used to.
Love Life: Who is her husband?
She is married in private ceremony in November 2016, though her husband’s name and profession are a complete mystery.
Covering what matters
Darsha’s articles during her time at KABC-TV have mostly been impactful. One such example is her article about a man named Leroy David Baca, who is a former sheriff of Los Angeles County, California, and now a convicted felon. In 2012 he was discharged from his position based on various investigations relating to how he operates at his workplace. He was later accused of various forms of inmate abuse, the most extreme of which was raping an inmate while she was in custody. He later pleaded guilty to numerous charges, including the obstruction of an FBI investigation by lying to officials, and was sentenced to three years in federal prison for his actions.
