Brooke Zauner joined the FOX 5 Atlanta team as a multimedia journalist in June 2020. Her television news career began just down the road in Augusta, Georgia.
Brooke spent nearly 4 years at WRDW/WAGT-TV in Augusta starting out as a multimedia journalist. She soon became a beat reporter and weekend anchor. Shortly after, she took on the role as co-anchor of News 12 This Morning.
She has covered hurricanes, high profile court cases like the case of Reality Winner, as well as major events including the Masters and the Sugar Bowl in 2018. Brooke graduated from Concordia University Chicago in 2016 where she majored in Communications and minored in Journalism. She grew up in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and has been living in the Southeast since June 2016.
When she's not at work, she enjoys traveling, trying new foods, hanging out with her rescue pup, and exploring the city. She's excited to get to know the people that make Atlanta so great. If you have a story idea, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
