Haley Hinds

Haley Hinds joined the WINK NEWS team in October 2009.

She caught the news bug early on during a grade school field trip to KDKA-TV in her hometown, Pittsburgh. She went on to graduate from Waynesburg University in 2008 with a B.A. in Communication/Electronic Media.

Haley started her career at WTVH/WSTM in Syracuse, New York as a one man band reporter where she covered everything from snow storms to Syracuse University athletics to the missing persons case of Aeryn Gillern that has since gained international attention.

But, she was born wearing flip flops and always knew she was meant to live in the Florida sunshine. She couldn't be happier to continue her career in beautiful Southwest Florida.

Haley can be found most Sundays cheering the Steelers on to another Super Bowl win (member #208 of the Fort Myers Steelers Fan Club!) She also enjoys competing in marathons and triathlons, singing, baking, golfing and spending time at the beach.

She is a member of Caleb's Crusade Against Childhood Cancer and on the Board of Directors for the Coalition for a Drug-Free Southwest Florida

Haley believes everyone has an interesting story to tell, and she'd love to hear yours. Just send her an e-mail at: haley.hinds@winktv.com
