Samantha Ruff joined WDTV in December 2019. She is an anchor for Daybreak and an anchor/producer for Midday.
Samantha Ruff began her love for Journalism at a very young age – but decided to pursue it at Northern Michigan University, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and earned an Associates degree in Media Production and New Technology. While in college she spent time anchoring, producing, directing and managing.
After graduating she returned to her hometown, Traverse City, Michigan and began working at a news station as a Producer and Director at WWTV - 9&10 News.
With a life being built in the mitten, she figured it was time for a change and moved down to Lexington, Kentucky where she was a Director and Production Manager for WTVQ – ABC 36.
Now Samantha joins us here, calling West Virginia home.
In her spare time she loves going hiking and being outdoors, spending time with her family and friends – and seeing new places around the area. If you have any story ideas – or would like to reach out you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
