An American native, Anita Padilla is a journalist, reporter, and news anchor known for working at FOX 32. She also holds a bachelor of arts degree in Broadcast Journalism from Columbia College.
Monday through Friday, you can see Padilla interviewing some of the most intriguing individuals I’ve ever met on Good Day Chicago. Some describe her as courageous since she will approach anyone in any neighborhood and strike up a conversation with them.
Padilla’s favorite feature of her profession, she says, is that every day is different and she meets new individuals who need their stories told. In Chicago, you could encounter her at a murder scene or a fire. On other days, Padilla may be seen at the studio or in the suburbs, where a family has been forced to relocate after their home was struck by lightning.
She was on the ground when TWA Flight 800 went down off the shore of Long Island, reporting on the deaths of Tupac Shakur, Frank Sinatra, Biggie Smalls, and Dean Martin. She had inadvertently approached an active situation where bullets were being fired and cops were slain.
She’s also covered World Series victories for the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox, as well as standing in the rain during hurricanes and tropical storms. She has seen shark attack victims pulled from the ocean and heard some of Florida’s most incredible crime stories.
