Natalie Brunell is a reporter and multimedia journalist with more than five years of broadcasting experience. She writes, shoots and edits all of her stories and feels at home in front of the camera.
Natalie earned her Master’s degree in Broadcasting & Videography in June 2012 from the prestigious Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, and she is currently a freelance video journalist media strategist.
Natalie has been keen on combining her passions for news, on-air reporting and traveling for as long as she can remember. In 2005 she left her home town of Palatine, Illinois and moved to Malibu to attend Pepperdine University, setting her sights on the TV industry. By the end of her four years there she was hosting and producing Strong Currents, a women’s talk show similar to The View, and reporting for TV-26 as a correspondent, producer and one-man-band. She also spent four semesters living in Florence, Italy, which included an opportunity to serve as a bilingual reporter for SeeTen, an Italian television station.
When she’s not reporting, Natalie loves traveling, movies and indulging her inner foodie at new restaurants.
