About Me

My name is Anna Huntsman, and I’m a health news reporter at Ideastream Public Media.
I’m a tenacious reporter and passionate leader.
Currently, I’m a health reporter at Ideastream Public Media, Cleveland’s PBS and NPR member station, where I cover health news and assist with community projects. I previously served as an associate producer for the award-winning children’s show NewsDepth, which provides news and educational content to middle schoolers across the state.
Before coming to Ideastream Public Media, I completed a fellowship for News21, a national investigative reporting program at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism in Phoenix, Arizona. My reporting there was published in The New York TimesWashington Post and Associated Press, in addition to other national outlets.
I’m passionate about public media and trying to make a difference in the communities I serve. My work has been recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists, Associate Collegiate Press and Cleveland Press Club.
In my spare time, I enjoy listening to podcasts, trying new recipes and getting lost in good books — my current favorite genre being mystery thrillers.
