Fanna Haile-Selassie

Reporter / Weekend Anchor

Fanna joined the News 3 team in August of 2011 and is extremely excited to enjoy a warmer climate than that of her hometown of Minneapolis.

She came to WSIL from Rochester, Minnesota, where she worked as the political, crime, and courts reporter at KTTC for more than three years. Fanna has been honored several times for her work by the Minnesota Associated Press and the Minnesota Society of Professional journalists. While always destined to be a reporter, she got the opportunity to learn from the best at the University of Missouri's School of Journalism. Go Tigers! She majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in French.

If Fanna's not out in the field looking for her next story, she's probably out salsa dancing in Carbondale. A salsa aficionado, Fanna looks forward to any chance where she can bust a latin move! She also loves traveling the world, meeting people, and finding new adventures.

Fanna is always looking for a good story, so feel free to email her story ideas.
