Hailey Auglair moved from her hometown of New Orleans to study journalism at LSU where she graduated in May 2020.
While at LSU, she worked for the student newspaper, The Reveille, as a reporter, news editor and managing editor. There, she won an Associated Press award for her in-depth coverage of Phi Delta Theta’s history of hazing before the death of freshman fraternity pledge Max Gruver in 2018.
Hailey interned at the Birmingham News/AL.com in Alabama in the summer of 2019. Some of her most notable coverage there included a Russian punk band’s concert protesting the abortion laws passed in 2019 and protests surrounding the Southern Baptist convention.
In the spring of 2020, she covered state politics at Louisiana’s capitol. Hailey also worked as an intern at The Advocate and NOLA.com on their digital team.
After graduating from LSU, Hailey began working for WAFB as a digital producer.
