Danielle Barber joined the NBC 6 news team in August 2014. She did not come to broadcast journalism by the traditional route.
Danielle switched to broadcast journalism only after earning a degree in economics from Drew University. After graduation she decided to head in a new direction, and completed a masters degree in Broadcast and Digital Journalism from Syracuse University.
Since coming to Louisiana, Danielle is learning to love the food, the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and, of course, the mild winters.
In her spare time, Danielle is a serious hoopster. She was a four year starter for the Drew University women’s basketball team, and at one point considered a career in coaching.
She’s also likes to enjoy a nice day on the golf course.
