All the way from the Hoosier state, Anna Darling is excited to live in, work in and serve the Northwest Arkansas and River Valley communities. She joined KNWA/FOX24 as the Weekend Anchor and a Multimedia Journalist in June of 2021.
Anna is from Brownsburg, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis. With several family members who also work in the news industry, she considers news the family business. She began her news career as a junior in high school at the Ben Davis Area 31 Career Center TV and radio program.
She then graduated from The Media School at Indiana University with a degree in broadcast journalism. She is a die-hard Hoosier sports fan, especially basketball. She also developed a love for cycling after competing in the annual Little 500 race for three years.
She got her first job in news at WLFI News 18 in Lafayette, Indiana. She worked there as the Weekend Anchor/Producer and Multimedia Journalist for three years. She regularly covered Indiana’s legislative sessions, local murder and court trials, and the impact of COVID-19 on north-central Indiana. She received a nomination for a 2020 Indiana Broadcaster’s Association Spectrum News award for a story she did on the pandemic.
This is Anna’s first time in the Natural State, so she is very excited to explore all it has to offer. If you have story ideas or recommendations on great places to visit or eat at, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
