Rebecca Green

News Director

Rebecca manages the news at WBOI. She joined the staff in December 2017, and brought with her nearly two decades of experience in print journalism, including 15 years as an award-winning reporter for the Journal Gazette in Fort Wayne.

A South Bend native, she is a graduate of Taylor University and resident of northeast Indiana since the late 1990's. Rebecca has covered everything from homicides to hurricanes, and the small stories in between that make up the fabric of a community. She is passionate about the importance of local news in guarding a strong democracy, and tries to instill that belief in her students as an adjunct instructor of journalism at Huntington University. 

In her spare time, Rebecca trains and handles a human remains detection dog, Helo, as a volunteer with Indiana Search and Response Team, a search and rescue organization. 

Parkview Health

 Parkview Cancer Institute announced ties to MD Anderson Cancer Network Wednesday, becoming one of three Indiana health systems to be certified members of their network.

 

The certification allows physicians and caregivers at Parkview to tap into the University of Texas-based cancer network for expertise, guidelines and even collaboration in treatment plans for patients, according to a press release issued Wednesday afternoon.

 

Fort Wayne Police Department

The Indiana State Police and the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office are investigating an early morning fatal shooting Wednesday involving a Fort Wayne Police officer. It is the first fatal police-action shooting in more than two years.

According to a press release, the officer was responding to the sound of gunshots in a neighborhood in southeast Fort Wayne. As the officer attempted to pull over a vehicle in the area, the driver of the vehicle fled.

Allen County Superior Court has a job opening, a unique position created to help victims navigate the maze of process involved in obtaining a protective order.

The newly-approved Protection Order Specialist will help men and women who allege they are victims of family or domestic violence, sexual abuse or stalking. The process of obtaining a protective order can be complicated.
