Dana Winter joined WKRG News 5 in March 2018 as a reporter.
Dana began her news career in West Texas as a weekend anchor and weekday reporter for KLST News. After spending almost two years in Texas, she decided it was time to try something new. She moved to Northwest Arkansas in 2016, where she was the morning reporter at KNWA and Fox 24 News for the next two years.
While she’s lived across the United States, Dana calls Central Florida home. She was raised in Winter Haven and her family still lives there. Dana attended the University of Florida where she studied broadcast journalism. During her time there, she interned at WOFL – Fox 35 and on the Monsters in the morning show on Clear Channel in Orlando.
When Dana isn’t at work you can find her at the dog park with her two pups Pepper and Rocky. She is also an avid hiker, so if you have any hiking spots you’d like to share, or story ideas, be sure to email her at DWinter@WKRG.com.
