Former NBC4 Anchor and NAWBO Member Mikaela Hunt Builds Community via New Channels

For eight years Mikaela Hunt woke up with Columbus news viewers as one of four co-anchors on NBC4 Today. During those years, Hunt built a relationship with viewers as a part of their daily morning routines — almost as if they knew her. But after 17 years in TV journalism, an unexpected — and at one point devastating — change came her way.

Years later, from time to time, Hunt will get a message on Facebook from someone saying, “I’m so glad I found you!” or “I didn’t know where you went. What happened?” Others told Hunt they called the station, left voicemails, and were even given the news director’s phone number, but never got a callback.
