Diana Crawford joined the WAFF 48 news team in July 2012 as a reporter. She comes to the "Rocket City" from west Texas. However, Diana is a true Florida girl, born and raised near the beaches of sunny Ft. Lauderdale.
Diana traded her flip flops for cowboy boots to get her start in the news business. She spent the last 2 years as a reporter in Amarillo, where she covered stories in the Texas panhandle, eastern New Mexico, and western Oklahoma.
It was there, that she experienced the wild weather of west Texas. From a winter with -30 degree wind chills, to storms with softball size hail, days with 50 mile per hour winds, and the Lone Star State's worst drought in history, Diana saw it all. She also covered several devastating wild fires and a deadly tornado. She regularly reported on the area's agriculture and economy, and was actively involved in covering the state's political scene. Diana helped local law enforcement catch many wanted criminals through her weekly series, "Fugitive File," and helped to enforce the ban on synthetic drugs such as K2. Through her stories, she also helped expand a non-profit organization aimed at feeding hungry children on the weekends.
But it was her years at the University of Florida and her internship at WKMG Local 6, that jump started her career. Diana is a proud Gator, but now that she is living in Alabama/Auburn country, she is also proud to say "Go SEC!"
Diana is excited to live and work in the Huntsville area. She would love to hear from you. You can email her with story ideas at email@example.com.
