Angela Brauer returns her hometown region of the Midwest after working across the United States as a news anchor, reporter, weather anchor, editor and producer. She is a news anchor for CBS4 This Morning and investigative reporter for the CBS4 Problem Solvers.
Angela grew up in Akron, Ohio, and went to college at Ohio University. After graduating early, she moved to Eugene, Oregon. She was there for a year and a half before she switched out full-time rain for full-time sun. In 2012, she moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico. There, she worked as a news and weather anchor, reporter and producer; a little bit of everything which meant a crazy schedule and sometimes very little sleep.
During her time at KOAT, Angela 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. Some of her favorite stories include highlighting a nonprofit organization called “Last Chance Intervention.” The group sponsored drug addicts so that they could seek rehabilitation. Two people saw her story and ended up recovering because of the program.
Angela also 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.
Angela will be up and four cups of coffee deep before you open your eyes every morning, tracking the latest breaking news and weather. After the broadcast, she is often out in the community helping solve problems for Hoosiers who have felt they have no where else to turn. She has also investigated the sexual assault nurse shortage in Indiana, how many students were caught vaping in classrooms and how much the state spent on PPE during the coronavirus pandemic.
While not in the newsroom, Angela is passionate about fitness and can often be found at the gym or outside. She spends time a lot of time with her two sons, husband and circus of dogs.
