LuAnne Sorrell is an anchor on FOX 35's afternoon and night newscasts.
LuAnne was born and raised in Minnesota where she graduated from the University of Minnesota.
She began her journalism career at KEYC-TV in Mankato, Minnesota where she was a one-man-band, doing a little of everything, including anchoring and weather. However, her hatred of cold weather took her to the desert of Las Vegas, Nevada, where she worked as a reporter with the CBS affiliate, KLAS-TV. After her five-year stint in Las Vegas, LuAnne moved to sunny South Florida where she joined WSVN-TV in Miami. LuAnne spent seven years in Miami reporting and anchoring the weekend morning newscast before coming to Central Florida. She joined FOX 35's Good Day Orlando show as an anchor and reporter. She later began anchoring the station's afternoon and night shows.
LuAnne has two boys that are the loves of her life. She spends her free time hanging out with her kids, watching sports and basking in the sun.
