Alana Austin joined the NBC29 news team in June 2013. She comes to us after working as a videojournalist for seven months in the Roanoke/Lynchburg market. During that time, she covered anything from politics to education to severe weather, while honing her videography skills.

In May 2012, she graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a dual degree in broadcast journalism and psychology. She also focused on completing hundreds of hours of community service, and part of her reason for entering this industry was because she believed she could serve the public through journalism.

While in school, she was a reporter for Carolina Week, an award-winning student-run newscast. She also interned for a national TV network in Berlin, Germany, an international wire service in Washington, D.C., and at various other university-related media outlets.

When not tracking down stories, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, being active and traveling.
