Wow, what a great feeling to be back in the Midwest! It’s been a while since I’ve been “home” and boy, do I feel welcome!
I grew up in Akron, Ohio and went to college at Ohio University. Then, after graduating early, I moved across the country to work as a multimedia journalist, video editor and weather anchor in Eugene, Oregon. I switched from full-time rain to full-time sun in 2012 when I moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. There, I worked as a news and weather anchor, reporter, producer; a little bit of everything which meant a crazy schedule and sometimes very little sleep, but I love being a “Jane” of all trades!
I have a lot of memorable stories throughout my time as a journalist, but the ones that really stick with me are the ones that made a difference. While in New Mexico, I exclusively broke a backlog in which police departments statewide weren’t able to process sexual assault evidence kits because of a lack of resources. It sparked the state to make some changes and the Albuquerque metro to pass ordinances to better serve victims. During my time at KOAT-TV, I won the New Mexico Broadcaster Association’s “reporter of the year” award and was named “best of the city” reporter four years in a row.
I hope I can make as big of an impact in Indianapolis. I will be up and four cups of coffee deep before you open your eyes every morning, tracking the latest breaking news and weather for you. My hope is that together, we can get you caught up and informed before you step out the door. Life is chaotic, your time is precious, I get it! I promise I will make it quick and easy for you know what’s happening in the world.
When I’m not in the newsroom, I’m with my family and 7 (yes, 7) dogs exploring the Hoosier state! I am excited to see what this awesome state has to offer. If you have any suggestions of where to go or where to eat, stop me on the street or give me a shout on social media @AngelaBrauerTV. I’d love to hear from you!
