Samantha Bowers is the host and producer for Midday Madison. She joined WKOW in June 2019 and is excited to call Wisconsin her new home!
Bowers is originally from the Kansas City area. She graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in journalism and a minor in political science, where she also worked as an anchor and reporter at mid-Missouri’s NBC affiliate station, KOMU 8 News. Prior to her time at KOMU, Samantha was the host of the College Emmy-nominated cooking show, “Show-Me Chefs” for two years. Her favorite memory from the show is getting to eat avocado ice cream on air!
Bowers is a self-proclaimed social media addict, which led her to launch her own lifestyle and fitness blog in 2017. Since then, she has worked on media campaigns with brands like Volkswagen, Fabletics, Nordstrom and Garmin Fitness. She was also an intern for The Knot in New York City, where she worked in the branded content department to develop sponsored articles for clients.
In her free time, Bowers loves working out, trying new restaurants, traveling and taking photos. As a big sports fan, she is excited to root for her new home teams, the Badgers, Brewers and Packers!
You can catch her weekdays at 11:15 a.m. on Midday Madison and 24/7 on social media! Connect with Samantha on Twitter @SamanthaBowers_ or on Facebook. Want to be on the show? Send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
