Horton hired as biz reporter for Indiana Public Broadcasting
Samantha Horton has been hired as a business reporter for Indiana Public Broadcasting.
She started on Monday.
Horton previously worked for WNIN Tri-State Public Media in Evansville, Indiana, where she was a local government and breaking news reporter.
In January 2016, Horton’s coverage of the Dubois County avian flu outbreak came despite a winter storm and a two-hour drive to the scene of the outbreak. She also filed the story for NPR as well as Indiana Public Broadcasting stations.
During the summer of 2016, Horton led WNIN’s shift to video as our primary news gathering tool, developing procedures and processes that put WNIN on the forefront of radio news departments in Indiana.
She also developed a few shows based off of “The Demographics of Wealth Report” published by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. In the shows, Horton examined how these reports related to the Evansville area.
Horton is a University of Evansville graduate.
