About Anna

My name is Anna Huntsman, and I’m an award-winning multimedia journalist. I’m an associate producer for health & education at ideastream, Cleveland’s public media station.IMG_5405

I’m a tenacious reporter and passionate leader.
Currently, I’m an associate producer at Cleveland’s PBS and NPR joint affiliate, where I assist the health team with daily coverage and long-term projects. I also work on the award-winning children’s show NewsDepth, which provides news and educational content to middle schoolers across the state.
I recently completed a fellowship for News21, a national investigative program based at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism in Phoenix, Arizona. My reporting has been published in The New York TimesWashington Post and Associated Press, in addition to other national outlets.
I’m passionate about public media and making 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.
