Adrienne Broaddus blames her dad. Pops, as she affectionately calls her father, made her write. She wrote about catching tadpoles and she wrote a letter to her parents demanding an extended curfew. Call letters that spell real words are meant for Adrienne Broaddus. Before her assignment at KARE-TV she worked at WISH-TV. She also interned with a government access station, HOM-TV, pronounced like home. Adrienne is tough enough to deliver breaking news that may leave folks unhappy; yet, compassionate enough to gain the trust of people whose painful truths are difficult to tell. The Emmy-award winning journalists anchors KARE 11 at 11 a.m. Monday – Friday. In Breaking News situations, with clarity and conviction she showcases her skills without a script.
She is currently pursuing her master’s degree at Ball State University. When given the keys, Adrienne likes to unlock stories that touch the heart.
“Anytime I am able to tell a story and help others, that's impactful. I did a story on a family who heard their son's heartbeat in the chest of another man. Their son, who died in a house fire, was an organ donor. Coupled with stories that touch the heart, I like educating and empowering communities often overlooked,” Broaddus said.
Adrienne has landed interviews with Snoop Dogg, Broncos Kicker Brandon McManus, Jennifer Lopez, Tiki Barber and others.
This is Adrienne. Greeting card junkie, ice cream fan, organ donor, and teller of stories to help us see the invisible. This is @abroaddus. #ThisIsJournalism! https://t.co/2V38KfxQco pic.twitter.com/wPBF5XndAY
