Sam has always been a "wicked" big sports fan-easy to do when you're from the Boston area.

As a kid, she spent the majority of her time in the pool and went on to swim for the University of Connecticut her freshman year. During her time at UCONN, she joined the student-run television station called UCTV. In a place where basketball is king, the hoops weren't too bad either. She covered the UCONN women's run to a national title in 2009.

Out of college, she worked behind the scenes in news and sports for the NBC affiliate in Hartford, CT. Then she landed her first on-air gig.

Sam comes to us from Lake Charles, LA, where she spent the last two years working as the weekend sports anchor for KPLC-TV.

She is thrilled to be part of sports team at FOX 25 and can't wait to see what Thunder, Sooner and Cowboy nation is all about. Sam says there's nothing like telling a compelling story.
