Zara Barker is a nightside reporter with FOX 2. Although she is originally from Southern California, she is excited to return to St. Louis.
Zara is no stranger to the best baseball city. She interned at KMOV during the summer between her junior and senior years in college.
She is a proud two-time graduate of the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism. After graduating with her bachelor’s, Zara worked as a reporter for KMIZ in Columbia, Missouri. While there, Zara also graduated with her master’s degree with an emphasis in investigative reporting. She was later promoted to anchor and investigative reporter.
Zara always knew she wanted to pursue a career in journalism. In elementary school, she would always wake up early to watch the news before heading to school to do the morning announcements.
When Zara is not at the station, she is traveling with her husband, hanging out with their dog, Lucia Barker, watching baseball, or drinking coffee.
