Florida Reporter Takes ‘Leap of Faith,’ Finds Job in Indianapolis

By Kevin Eck 

Cierra Putman has joined Indianapolis NBC affiliate WTHR as a reporter.

“New city, new station, new position!” said Putman on social media. “Excited to join the WTHR-TV 13 Investigates team in #Indianapolis. So happy to join a legacy station and respected team.”

Putman said she “took a leap of faith” when she decided not to renew her contract at her previous station WFTV in Orlando without a new job lined up. After getting several offers, she said she chose WTHR because, “in the end, WTHR felt like the right fit,” she said.


She is “very excited for the future.”
