Evansville, Indiana

Samantha Johnson joined the 14News team in May 2020 as an Anchor/Multimedia Journalist. A native Hoosier from central Indiana, she is excited to now be living in the Tri-State!

Johnson is a two-time graduate of Ball State University, first earning her Bachelor of Arts in 2018 in both Telecommunications and Journalism News with minors in Spanish and Leadership Studies. Most recently, she completed her Master of Arts in Digital Storytelling in May 2020.

During her time in Muncie, Johnson served as a news and sports anchor/reporter for NewsLink Indiana, Delaware County’s only live nightly newscast. In February 2018, Johnson spent two weeks as a multimedia journalist in Pyeongchang, South Korea covering the Winter Olympic Games. During her time in graduate school, she worked as the Recruiting & Operations Assistant for Ball State Football and as a sideline reporter for ESPN+ covering NCAA men’s basketball.

A football fanatic at heart, Johnson loves to spend her Saturdays and Sundays in full stadiums cheering on her favorite teams (#ChirpChirp, #GoIrish, #GoHorse), exploring new coffee shops and running her way through the Tri-State.
