About the author
Darryl Hood is an accomplished broadcast journalist with more than 15 years experience as a news anchor and reporter. He knew since the age of 16 he wanted a career in television news. With the support of his family, friends and the guidance of several mentors, Darryl was able to fulfill his dream of becoming a part of a business he enjoys greatly. Darryl began his career as a reporter for the Orange County Newschannel (OCN) in Orange County, California one semester prior to graduating from California State University Northridge. From OCN, he was hired on as weekend anchor/reporter for KQTV in St. Joseph, Missouri. After a year and a half there, he took a gamble on Las Vegas, Nevada where he spent five years as an anchor and reporter. When Darryl left Las Vegas, he was given the opportunity to report for his dream station, KCAL-TV in Los Angeles, which also afforded him the opportunity to report for KCAL’s sister station KCBS-TV. Darryl then went on report for KCNC-TV in Denver, Colorado, and after that, headed back to Los Angeles to anchor the weekly newsmagazine LA This Week for LA CityView Channel 35. Darryl has also worked for stations in Memphis, Tennessee and Columbia, South Carolina. Currently, Darryl serves as evening news anchor for Alabama News Network in Montgomery.
