Haley Hinds is co-anchor for the FOX 13 weekend evening newscasts. She joined the FOX 13 News team in October of 2014.
An eighth-grade field trip to KDKA-TV in her hometown of Pittsburgh, PA helped Haley realize a career in TV news was her future. She went on to graduate from Waynesburg University in 2008 with a B.A. in communication/electronic media.
Though she grew up in Pennsylvania, Florida has easily become home. Haley most recently spent five years reporting and anchoring at WINK News in Fort Myers. While at WINK, she traveled all over the state, covering stories like the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, tropical storms, and Florida Gulf Coast University's ("Dunk City") rise to national fame in the 2013 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.
She was honored by the Florida Associated Press Broadcasters in 2013 with the Best Individual Achievement Award for excellence in covering various hard news, breaking news and feature stories.
Before flying south to Florida, Haley worked as a multimedia journalist at WTVH/WSTM in Syracuse, NY. There, she broke the story on the missing persons case of Aeryn Gillern, which has since gained international attention.
In her free time, she enjoys competing in marathons and triathlons, singing, golfing and road tripping around the Sunshine State. A lifelong Pirates fan, she's looking forward to spending many afternoons at Spring Training games in Bradenton.
