Aishah Hasnie anchors FOX59′s First at Four and is a FOX59 Investigates reporter.

Aishah joined the news team in July 2011. Before that, she was an investigative reporter and fill-in anchor at WANE-TV in Fort Wayne.

Aishah is an Emmy nominated journalist. Her work has also been recognized by the Indiana Associated Press and the Society of Professional Journalists.

One of her investigations even changed Indiana law. She discovered voyeurs who committed their crimes in public spaces could not be successfully prosecuted, because of a loophole in the voyeurism law. Her persistent reporting inspired legislation that closed that loophole.

Aishah was born in Pakistan, but grew up in Bedford, IN. She has also lived in Saudi Arabia.

She received her B.A. in Broadcast Journalism from Indiana University where she was a Dick Yoakam Broadcast Journalism Scholar. That gift inspired her to give back in 2010 by awarding a scholarship to a journalism student at IU. She currently mentors several working journalists.

Aishah got her start at WICS-TV in Springfield, IL as an on-air intern reporter at the age of 18. She also interned at WTHR-TV in Indianapolis and GEO-TV, an international network based in Pakistan.

Aishah is passionate about journalism and committed to digging up the truth. She’s also dedicated to closing gaps between people, and opening up the world for others.

All of that aside, Aishah is an all around Indiana girl. She loves trap and target shooting with her dad, playing soccer, globetrotting, and spending time with her family and friends.
