Emmy award winning journalist Audrey Barnes joined WTTG Fox 5 in March of 2012 as a General Assignment Reporter. She currently anchors the WTTG Fox 5 Saturday evening newscast. She is also a reporter and substitute anchor for other Fox 5 broadcasts.
It's actually Audrey's third stint at the station. During the first two she was a freelance reporter for Fox 5, one of the first to reach the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Audrey considers the work she did that day some of her finest: interviewing Pentagon workers fleeing the burning building, first responders scrambling to help, and relatives desperately searching for loved ones who never made it home for dinner. Audrey was nominated for an Emmy for her almost ten straight hours of live reporting on September 11.
Prior to joining Fox 5, Audrey was a Reporter and Substitute Anchor for WUSA TV-9 and WRC News 4 in Washington, DC. She spent four years as the Morning Anchor at WBAL TV in Baltimore. Audrey has also worked at television stations in Detroit, Charlotte, and Jacksonville, earning numerous awards and honors for her Anchoring, Reporting and community service.
When she's not at work, Audrey will most likely be out running one of the numerous trails in the DC area. She's completed one marathon and several ten mile races. Audrey's also an avid tennis player and dog lover. She lives in Maryland with her husband and two 75-pound Labrador Retrievers. Their daughter is a recent college graduate, and their son will graduate from college in 2015.
