Samantha Horton

Last month, we welcomed Samantha Horton to our station. She is Indiana Public Broadcasting reporter, mainly reporting on business and economic issues in the States of Indiana for WBAA. After graduated from Evansville University with a triple majors degree (International studies, Political science and Communication), Samantha worked for a Public Radio at Evansville for three years, and then she joined WBAA because she wanted to take a bigger role on reporting. So far she enjoyed working in WBAA as business and economy reporter.

In her leisure time, Samantha enjoys running, trying different craft beers and playing board games with her family members. A little fun fact about her is that she signed up Marathon last year and she will give anther try this year on November.
