Summer Horan, Multimedia Journalist
Hello and thank you for checking out my page!
Where am I from? I am a proud local! I grew up in Granger, Indiana. As I attended Indiana University Bloomington, this turned into “I am from South Bend.” On vacations I pull the old “Notre Dame area.” Basically, I know this area, it is part of me, and I am passionate about its community.
I am an up-and-coming multimedia journalist and joined the ABC57 News team in August of 2019. This is my first job outside of graduating college and I could not be more excited to start here, in my own backyard!
I am a proud alumna of Indiana University’s Media School. In May of 2019 I graduated with a Journalism degree and specializations in News Reporting and Editing, along with a minor in Sociology-- I will forever love my Indiana Home.
Not only do I bleed cream and crimson, but Irish blue and gold run through my veins. I was born and raised right here in Michiana and went to Christ the King and Saint Joseph High School. Like my name suggests, I love sunshine and heat along with all things water.
Outside of work-- I love going on drives, visiting our beautiful northern neighbor Michigan, spending time with my big, amazing family, and all things cheetah print.
Now that you know about me, I want to learn more about you! I learned that journalism was for me when I realized that it is the perfect sphere to meet and learn people’s stories. It matters to me what stories I work on and I want them to be things that you care about!
So if you want to talk, say hello, or share a story, please reach out to me! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/message me at (574) 440-4926.
