Here's some fun facts about Ali Meyer.

Hometown: Carmel, Indiana

Life Goal: To have happy, healthy children who love the Lord

Most embarrassing moment: Too many to count. I'm clumsy..and get tongue-tied easily. That's a lethal combo in TV news!

When you knew you wanted to be a reporter: I used to be addicted to 20/20. Seriously, I spent most Friday nights in junior high watching Hugh Downs and Barbara Walters....geeky I know. I just always knew that's what I wanted to do.

Best movie of all time: Annie

People are surprised when I tell them: I have 4 daughters!

I like to listen to: silence. Seriously, four chatty baby girls at home. Yes. I like silence just fine!

Best part of the day: When there's news breaking. It's pretty awesome to see the whole team come together to cover a news event. Behind the scenes, dozens of people all have their part to contribute and folks at home would be surprised how it all goes out over the airwaves.

Favorite place to be other than home & work: My childhood home in Indiana. It's pretty awesome to visit and sleep in the room where I grew up.
