Anna Dean was born and raised in Wheeling, WV. She attended Wheeling Park High School,
graduating with the class of 2017. In 2020, she transferred from West Virginia University to
West Liberty University.
Anna is currently a senior and is pursuing a B.S in Media Communications. After graduation,
she hopes to work in the podcasting industry and develop her own shows. During her Spring ‘23 internship with WGLZ, Anna will work on creating a podcast anthology series of short, spooky stories.
Some hobbies that Anna enjoys are reading, writing, and playing video games. Reading series such as Percy Jackson and the Olympians as a kid inspired her to get into creative writing. This interest also encouraged her to take part in contests, such as the Ohio County Public Library’s Awesome Author contest from 2008-2010. Anna likes to play games such as Destiny 2, the Sims 4 and Minecraft, as well. When she isn’t working on schoolwork, she can probably be found writing or playing games with friends.
Anna hopes that through working with WGLZ, she will be able to learn and become proficient in skills such as on-air hosting and show production. Check back throughout the Spring ‘23 semester for updates on Anna’s upcoming series, ‘Twisted Tales of Terror’!
