Samantha Edwards joined the NEWS CENTER team in June 2012.
The Florida native is excited to explore all Maine has to offer, but the winters may be a bit challenging.
Before joining the NEWS CENTER team, Samantha earned her Master's in Broadcast Journalism from Emerson College. She reported on everything from the Back Bay blackout to the New Hampshire Primary. Samantha also interned at NECN, an experience she said was invaluable to improving her skills as a reporter.
Samantha started her reporting career while attending Florida State University. She reported for Florida Public Radio and spent her days at the state capital where her love for politics really shined through.
When not chasing down a story, Samantha loves enjoying the outdoors, traveling to new places, trying new recipes and cheering on her Florida State Seminoles.
