Alana joined KBOI 2News in August of 2009 as a reporter and weekend weather forecaster. She also "anchored KBOI 2news at 9" before moving to the morning show. Alana's career in Idaho has earned her a number of journalism awards from the Idaho Press Club, as well as the "best feature news story" from the Idaho State Broadcasters Association.

Alana's passion for journalism flourished during her time at Gonzaga University, where she earned her bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism.

Alana comes to the Gem State after two years of anchoring, reporting and forecasting in St. George, Utah. While in the desert, Alana covered stories from the local polygamist reaction to the El Dorado raid to the opening of the Donnie and Marie Osmond Show in Las Vegas.

She also headed up the crime series, "The Tri-State Crime Stoppers," which helped apprehend numerous fugitives within the community, and earned her a Community Partnership Award from the Washington City Police.

Alana's family is originally from Staten Island, New York. They now live in Bountiful, Utah. She has an awesome older brother who can always be counted on to bring home the gold from Special Olympics, and a fabulous and supportive older sister.

In her free time, Alana enjoys spending time with her nephew and niece, Evan and Aislynn, volunteering in the community and like any other now Idahoan---biking and walking on the greenbelt!
