Barb Anguiano



Barb Anguiano  is an award-winning audio journalist. She’s proud of her Hammond roots and joined the WBOI News Team in the fall of 2018. Barb graduated in 2015 from Indiana University’s Journalism School, where she was first introduced to audio-storytelling and audio journalism.


After graduating from IU, Barb traveled to the prairies of North Dakota and dabbled in print copy-editing. But she missed radio, and applied for and attended the Transom Story Workshop in the Spring of 2016. Thanks to Transom, Barb developed confidence in her voice as a journalist and later started her radio journey at WVPE in Elkhart, Indiana.


When Barb isn’t digging to the heart of and covering local stories, she enjoys the Rolling Stones, Doctor Who, dogs, dogs dressed as Doctor Who. A wannabe petrolhead Barb’s biggest radio fantasy is to either produce a podcast about Formula 1 Racing, or dogs.

Public school districts in Allen County launched a campaign Wednesday aimed at improving safety around school buses.

Along with local law enforcement, school officials are reminding drivers of the need to be aware of school buses, unveiling the new motto of “Slow, Stop, and Stay” for drivers. 

The campaign reminds drivers to slow down when yellow lights are flashing; stop when red lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended; and stay put until the lights stop flashing and children are out of the way.
