Ana Orsini joined the KCBD team in September of 2018. A place her family once called home, Ana is excited to return to Lubbock and be part of such a special community.
Ana graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and minors in Sport Management and Communication. During her time in Aggieland, Ana worked as news intern for KBTX in Bryan/College Station, where she covered everything from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey to the passing of First Lady Barbara Bush.
Her passion for news is driven by her passion for others. She knew she wanted to become a journalist after a college course gave her the opportunity to produce news videos for non-profit organizations. One of those organizations was especially near and dear to her heart because it was the animal shelter she rescued her dog Harley from. Ana grew up in Colorado, but most recently lived in California with her parents, younger twin sisters, and five rescue dogs. When she’s not a work, or out saving stray animals, you can find her watching a college football game or cheering on the Golden State Warriors!
