Title: Multi-platform Journalist and Weekend Anchor/Producer

Anna Darling joined the News 18 team in July of 2018 as a Multiplatform Journalist and Weekend Anchor/Producer.

She is originally from Brownsburg, Indiana. She graduated from the Indiana University Media School with a degree in broadcast journalism.

With a grandfather who was a World War II journalist for his hometown newspaper in Washington, Indiana, an uncle who covered news and sports for the Herald Times in Bloomington, and an older brother who works at WIBC in Indianapolis, you could say news reporting is a family business for her.

She began her news career at the Area 31 Career Center at Ben Davis High School as a junior in high school. She worked for the radio station, WBDG, for one year and did the TV program, BDTV, for two years.

While at BDTV, she contributed to the newscast that won first place at the 2013 IASB competition. At the 2014 IASB competition, she won first place for her news package and was a top six finalist in live anchoring.

While at IU, she worked for the student television club, IUSTV, and reported for IUNewsnet. She worked for WISH-TV on their street promotions team as well as completed a summer internship there in 2017. She also did some work for Big Ten Student U during her senior year.

Even though she is a lifelong IU fan, she is excited to continue her career at WLFI.

She rode in the Little 500 at IU for three years, and she continues to cycle for fun. She loves to read, camp with her family, explore the outdoors, watch college basketball, and snuggle with her cat. One goal she has for herself personally is to become a better cook.

Anyone with story ideas/yummy recipes is welcome to email her. Please follow her twitter @AnnaDarlingTV.
