A native of Macon, Sonja Daugherty holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Howard University in Washington, DC. While at Howard, she wrote for the campus newspaper, The Hilltop, and also reported at the student- run radio station.

Returning to Macon, Sonja worked for The Macon Telegraph for several years but then took a position with a large insurance company. There she saw how the law impacted GA residents. She made the transition to working in a law office and is now working in the office of attorney Michael Horner.

She says hosting 13WMAZ LawCall, lets her combine 2 of her favorite things – broadcasting and helping people. “It is also nice my father can watch the show,” she says. “I think he is our biggest fan.”

Sonja and her husband have a lot of family and friends in Macon and Forsyth. You may see the whole clan at any of the concerts and music festivals. She's been a member of the sorority Delta Sigma Theta since 1994. Her guilty pleasure is making desserts.
