Sam Searles is digital content producer at CBS19.
Sam hails from Portland, Oregon, but was raised in Austin by two Canadians, giving her a more northern upbringing than most Texans.
She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas State University in Dec. 2021, where she received a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Electronic Media and Mass Communications with a focus in Digital Media, as well as a minor in Exercise and Sports Science.
When she’s not writing pieces for the website or creating other forms of content in the newsroom, you can find her lifting heavy weights at a local gym or hiking throughout town, listening to the cacophony that nature provides!
If there’s a chance she’s indoors, Sam hangs out with her hamster and enjoys curling up with a 20-ounce mug of coffee to read a horror novel or to watch the Toronto Maple Leafs on the NHL. #LeafsNation
