INDIANAPOLIS — Angelica Robinson is an Emmy Award-winning journalist who brings more than 10 years of experience in fields related to writing, broadcasting, public relations and public speaking.  

She joined the 13News team in August 2023 as a Multiskilled Journalist. 

Before joining 13News, Robinson was an anchor and investigative reporter at ABC’s 21Alive News in Fort Wayne. She played an instrumental role in covering breaking news stories, crime, court reporting and digging deeper into the stories that matter to the community. Robinson also focused on a wide range of topics including city government, health care, and education.  

Robinson led the charge in a fight for public records with the city of Fort Wayne, that resulted in the city changing the policy on the release of police body and dash cam video in 2022. Prior to that, the city had a longstanding policy not to release those videos. Her efforts led to her first Regional Emmy Award and a first-place award from the Society of Professional Journalists for investigative reporting. 

Prior to working at 21Alive News, she was the lead investigative reporter at Fort Wayne’s CBS affiliate WANE 15 News.  

Robinson was recognized multiple times by the Society of Professional Journalists for her investigative reports. Tobacco Free Allen County recognized Robinson for Outstanding Reporting on Youth and E-Cigarettes in 2019 and the Fort Wayne Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police recognized her for Outstanding Police Journalism in 2020.  

Robinson also taught broadcasting, journalism and communication courses at Indiana Tech.  

In 2020, she served as a project editor for Input Fort Wayne’s Voices of Southeast which highlighted key issues, needs and development in the Southeast area of Fort Wayne.  

Additionally, she served as a public information officer for the City of Fort Wayne’s Community Development Division for two years before deciding to return to news. 

Robinson got the “news bug” at a young age.  

She is a native of Dayton, Ohio where her father spent 46 years working at a local television station. Much of that time he was a photojournalist. As a child, he would take her out on news stories. Although Robinson considered herself a shy kid, her father recalls Robinson asking to hold the microphone so she could tell everyone what happened at the scene of breaking news.  

She graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a B.A. in Communication. She decided to further her education at DePaul University in Chicago where she obtained a master’s degree in journalism. During that time, she interned at Chicago’s National Public Radio station WBEZ. 

Her first television news job was in Chicago at WGN-TV, where she was a news writer for the station’s morning show. She later became a fill-in producer for WGN’s 24-hour sister network CLTV. 

Robinson has held memberships in various professional organizations including, Society of Professional Journalists, National Association of Black Journalists, Association of Women Journalists and the PBS Fort Wayne board. She is also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Jack and Jill of America. 

Robinson wears many other hats including coach’s wife, soccer mom, and plant mom. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family, journaling, reading, and traveling.
