Mandy Hrach joined the team in December 2020 as a multimedia journalist. She spent most of her childhood growing up in Ohio.
Mandy graduated from the University of Memphis (Go Tigers!) in 2016 with a degree in broadcast journalism and a minor emphasis in German.
Before her time at FOX13, she was at KATV in Little Rock, Arkansas. There, she covered everything from the historic Arkansas River flood to the George Floyd protests at the state capitol addressing racism and police brutality.
She got her start at WBBJ in Jackson, Tennessee, where she anchored and reported for two years.
Mandy comes from a news family. She has many fond memories of going to work with her dad while he was a reporter for the Marietta Times in Ohio when she was a young girl.
When she is not working on a story, Mandy enjoys hiking, trying new restaurants, and exploring all the outdoor activities the Mid-South has to offer.
