LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Ford Sanders joined the WHAS11 News team in January of 2022 as an On-Air Reporter/Multiskilled Journalist

He is originally from Nashville, Tenn., and is a graduate of the University of Tennessee Knoxville where he earned a degree in Journalism and Electronic Media.

Ford spent the last year working in Eastern North Carolina. There he covered stories ranging from the fight for health equity regarding maternal and infant mortality and morbidity rates to the push for legislative change after a man lost his daughter to a guardrail in a car accident.

In his time at UTK, Ford was a reporter and anchor for his school’s newscast “UT Today.” Ford also worked in production with the SEC Network for about half of his college career.

He also reported for WVLT News in Knoxville, Tenn., as a Digital Reporter/Content Producer. He parted ways with the company when he was offered an internship with CBS News in New York City and CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell.

Prior to his time at WVLT News, Ford lived in Prague, CZ for the summer of 2019 and worked as an international fellow with Transitions Online News and Reuters.

Ford was awarded the Courtney Lyle Broadcast Scholarship and the UTK Journalism School’s Broadcast Excellence Scholarship.

Outside of his time at WHAS, Ford loves being with friends and exploring new parts of the city.

Ford is excited to be in Kentucky and is glad to know its neighbors with his home in Tennessee.
