Alanna Autler is a loud and proud New Jersey native, but the Kanawha Valley has fought its way into her heart for good.

Alanna joined the 13 News team as a reporter in June 2012.

The wild ride started in Lansing, where she worked as a general assignment reporter. Before that, she interned at Fox News Channel in New York City for more than two years.

As a graduate of Northwestern University, her favorite animal is the Wildcat. She studied journalism and Spanish.

Other stints include Washington, D.C., where she worked as a multimedia health care reporter and Lambertville, N.J., where she wrote for a home and garden magazine. Ask her anything about couches.

When she's not working, she's running on the boulevard, eating, ranting about the New York Yankees' postseason record (because there's always a postseason), or reminiscing about the New York Knicks circa the late 1990s.

And of course, Autler loves a good story.
