I’m Angenette Levy. I have more than 13 years of experience reporting on television news. Most recently, I worked as a reporter and fill-in anchor in Cincinnati, Ohio.
I have covered some interesting stories during my career including Pope Francis’s visit to the United States in 2015, the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland and a number of campaign visits by Hilary Clinton, then Sen. Barack Obama, Mitt Romney and President Donald Trump.
While I enjoy covering politics, I enjoy covering trials most of all. I have covered a number of high profile court cases in Wisconsin and Ohio including the trials of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey which became the subject of a Netflix documentary. In Cincinnati, I covered the third trial of a man accused of drowning his wife in a bathtub and the two trials of Ray Tensing, a campus police officer charged with murdering an African-American man during a traffic stop.
I also covered the U.S. Supreme Court case Obergefell v. Hodges. The landmark case struck down bans on same-sex marriage. The case originated in federal court in Cincinnati. I also covered the case of an ISIS-sympathizer who plotted to blow up the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
One of the highlights of my career came in May 2015. I was assigned to cover an Amber Alert that had been issued for a toddler ho was taken by her half-brother who was a heroin addict. While covering the story, I found the young girl in the home of her sibling’s father. It ended a frantic search for the toddler and she was reunited with her parents. I was nominated for a regional Emmy for the story.
In my spare time, I volunteer for the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. I enjoy writing, reading, cycling and spending time with my family.
