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.
