Utah is home for RaeAnn and where she started her career in local television news. She first started as an associate producer for the FOX station Salt Lake City. She then switched to the NBC affiliate, as a full-time producer. Working there, she won many local awards and also became an Emmy® award-winning producer.
After several years of producing and being behind the scenes, ready for a new challenge, RaeAnn thought she would give being on-air a shot. She packed her bags and made her way to Oregon to work for KOBI the NBC affiliate in Medford. There she worked as a morning anchor, weather anchor, and reporter.
At the request of KSBY in San Luis Obispo, California, of running the station on the weekends, and being the anchor, weather anchor and executive producer, she was excited and accepted the challenge. During the week, she was out reporting on Central Coast News. One of her most memorable moments was reporting live for the Refugio Oil Spill in which more than 140,000 gallons of crude oil spilled into the Pacific Ocean from a broken pipeline. The team went on to win an Emmy® and AP Award for their coverage.
The great state of Texas called RaeAnn’s name, where she worked for the Fox O&O in the state’s capital of Austin. RaeAnn worked as a reporter and weather anchor.
RaeAnn earned a bachelor of science in broadcast journalism from Weber State University in Utah.
Outside of work, she enjoys West Coast Swing and Country dancing, hiking, traveling and spending time with her family and friends.
