Drew Blair started as a general assignment reporter at WISH-TV in March, 2013.
Never afraid to dream, she has always been a believer that all things work out in time. For Drew, the timing came down to a matter of six and half years in the news business before her dream of returning to her hometown to do what she loves came true.
Drew spent six and a half years at WISH-TV’s sister station, WANE, Fort Wayne, Indiana. She became known as a “Jill of all trades,” and the “newsroom’s Swiss Army knife” having worked as a photographer, producer, fill-in weather personality, reporter and lastly anchor.
Drew loves variety and said that is what attracted her to the unique opportunity to cover news that changes every day, every hour. She said she is honored to do so for the community she has always called home.
Drew is a proud Hoosier and was born and raised in Indianapolis. She graduated from Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School and went on to earn a degree in Telecommunications from Indiana University in Bloomington.
Honored for both reporting and producing; Drew’s work has been awarded by the Society of Professional Journalists and the Associated Press. She said she is most proud of being recognized by her colleagues by being awarded the LIN Media Circle of Excellence winner which is the corporation’s employee of the year designation.
Drew and her husband, along with their “90 pounds of love” (a German Shepherd named Jager) are thrilled to make Indy home again. When not gathering the news that matters most to you, she enjoys traveling, attending concerts, doing anything outdoors and hysterically cheering on those Indiana Hoosiers!
