Samantha Johnson joined the WTHR team in May 2022 as a Multiskilled Journalist.
She comes to Indianapolis after a two-year stint at the NBC sister-station in Evansville, WFIE. There, she served as an Anchor and Reporter.
As a central Indiana native, Samantha is thrilled to be "back home again." She grew up in Morgan County, graduating from Martinsville High School in 2014. She then traveled up the road to Muncie, where she attended Ball State University. There, she earned both her bachelor's degree in telecommunications and master's degree in digital storytelling.
In 2018, Samantha covered the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, working with both WTHR and WFIE. During graduate school, Samantha worked with ESPN+ covering NCAA men's basketball. She also served as the Recruiting and Operations Graduate Assistant for Ball State Football.
When she is not in the newsroom, Samantha enjoys spending time outdoors and exploring local coffee shops. She also enjoys rooting for the Colts and cheering on Ball State and Notre Dame Football every chance she gets.
