About Allison

For more than ten years I’ve told the stories that matter to you. I truly believe in journalism and its power to influence change. I grew up in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri. My mentor as a teenager, was and is, an anchor at KTVI in St. Louis. I watched her tell stories and get to the root of problems in the city. Her attitude on-air, great story telling, and strong writing showed me what it takes to be true journalist.

I graduated from the University of Missouri, Columbia where I learned how to make magic happen on television with creative story structure all while having an ethically sound mind. I learned true journalism from some of the best in the business.

My first job after KOMU, the NBC owned station at Mizzou, was at WTAJ in Altoona, Pennsylvania. I worked in a bureau in State College and polished my skills of meeting deadlines, making a story memorable, and mastering the live shot.

Then, I headed to WPEC in West Palm Beach, Florida. For three years, I covered everything under the sun, literally.  I strengthened my on-air skills and learned quick, accurate writing and ad-libbing at its finest. I was able to dig deep and uncover corruption. I was live several times a day and breaking news was a regular occurrence.

From 2010-2013 I was a reporter and fill-in anchor in Knoxville, Tennessee. WBIR showed me how to welcome their motto “Straight From The Heart” and tell stories which engaged our viewers.

Next, I started as a reporter and fill-in anchor at News 12 Connecticut with a stint as a freelance reporter at News 12 New Jersey. There I covered major breaking new affecting the tri-state region outside of New York City.

Currently, I am the morning and noon anchor at WTVH in Syracuse New York. My husband and I wanted to move closer to family. We are thrilled to live in Central New York!
