Digital News Producer
Miranda Fulmore is an award-winning journalist with several years’ experience reporting for radio, web, print and television outlets in across the Southeast and Midwest. She’s also the co-creator of the short-run political podcast MIDTERMinAL, focused on Alabama’s 2018 midterm elections.
Before coming to WBHM, she was the morning newscaster and multimedia reporter at Indiana Public Media in Bloomington and an intern reporter at Georgia Public Broadcasting and Alabama Public Radio. While at APR she broke the story of UA students who work as “sugar babies” – trading time, affection and (sometimes) sex for gifts and cash for tuition. The story won a regional Edward R. Murrow award and the Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Award.
Miranda grew up in Birmingham, performing with various local community theatre companies including Red Mountain Theatre. She’s a graduate of Vestavia Hills High School and the University of Alabama and in her free time she enjoys good music, fishing and cooking.
There’s a lot of chatter among political pundits and voters about whether Gov. Kay Ivey is up to the task of leading the state for a full term. Is it a question that comes up often for older female political candidates?
