FOX 8 is proud to welcome Cleveland’s own Brittany Harris! Brittany joined the news team as a reporter in June of 2013.
She grew up right here in Northeast Ohio.
After graduating from Solon High School, Brittany went on to earn her degree in Broadcast Journalism from Columbia College in Chicago.
During her time in the Windy City, Brittany interned for WMAQ-TV, WBBM-TV and 103.5 KISS FM.
She also worked as a Production Assistant for Bill Kurtis Productions.
Brittany landed her first job at WHIZ-TV in Zanesville, Ohio.
While she was there, she won an Ohio Associated Press Award for “Best Investigative Reporting.” Her story uncovered how budget cuts forced the city jail to release some inmates early, making the community more vulnerable to crime.
She eventually moved on to Springfield, Illinois to become a Statehouse Reporter for WCIA-TV.
She covered political news daily and interviewed many of the state’s top leaders.
She also got the chance to interview Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney and his wife Ann.
It’s always been Brittany’s dream to get back home, and now she’s finally here!
When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, her cat Miles, and catching up on all her favorite TV shows.
She looks forward to getting to know the area again too!
