Brooke Buford is the assistant news director, 6 p.m. anchor and criminal justice system reporter at KALB.

While she originally calls Baltimore, Maryland home, she has lived in Central Louisiana since first starting her career in broadcasting at KALB in 2011. In 2012, Brooke left to working a news station in Portland, Maine – later returning to KALB in 2014.

In 2016, Brooke was one of about two dozen journalists from the United States selected by the University of South Carolina’s School of Law for a week long media-law school fellowship.

In 2017, she was one of 12 journalists from the United States selected to take part in an all-expense paid fellowship called the RIAS German-American Exchange Program. She spent two weeks in Germany and Belgium meeting other journalists around the globe. While there she also spent time with key members of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s team and took part in seminars at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, the European Commission, and NATO.

Brooke loves doing volunteer work in the community. She spent two years on the board of directors for the YWCA Alexandria-Pineville. She is currently the media member on the Rapides Parish Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), which assists in planning and notification in case of a parish-wide emergency.

In her spare time, she loves to travel abroad.
