Rosanna Smith

Born in Germany and raised in Lima, Ohio, Rosanna Smith is no stranger to exciting adventures. However, Montgomery, Al and its southern hospitality would claim Smith's heart, making it truly "Sweet Home Alabama". Rosanna graduated from Montgomery's Taylor Road Academy and completed her collegiate career at Auburn University Montgomery as a Communications Major. Rosanna started her career at WSFA 12 News in September of 2011, working behind the scenes as a photographer and news content specialist. Since 2014, she has covered news in the Wiregrass and East Alabama as a general assignment reporter. The most exciting stories she’s covered have included an Elmore Co. colorblind teenager seeing color for the first time with the help of special glasses, the dedication of WWI statue at Union Station, and the opening day of the Alabama National Fair. In July of 2017, Rosanna made the transition back to Montgomery and is excited to continue covering issues that concern residents in and around the River Region. Rosanna was recognized by the WSFA staff when she earned the 2012 "Team Spirit Achievement" award for her fun-loving personality, likability in the newsroom, and dedication. While covering the news stories like the Iron Bowl or Selma's annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee are quite rewarding, in her spare time, Rosanna enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with her family. She is an active member of her church, where she is involved with the media department. Rosanna hopes that her contributions will create stronger communities, better connections and greater results.
