Elizabeth Prann Bio: Early Life, Family and Education
Elizabeth Prann was raised an only child in her hometown by her mother Cheryl Prann. As a child she showed interest towards being in the spotlight, and was always engaged with her community. Shortly before Elizabeth entered high school, the family decided to relocate to Denver, Colorado, where Elizabeth enrolled at Cherry Creek High School. While at high school she started editing the school newspaper, thus developing an interest in journalism – she liked the idea of reporting about various news events to other people, especially on important subjects. She also tried out several sports, and realized that lacrosse was the one that suited her best.
After she matriculated from high school, she had a period of soul-searching and career planning, and eventually decided that journalism was the right career path for her, so applied tt the University of Florida in 2002. During her time at the University, Prann was a member of the women’s Florida Gators lacrosse team, as wel as being a part of the Delta Gamma sorority. She graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism, and started searching for job opportunities.
Elizabeth Prann landed her first job in her desired field of work when she was hired by Fox News and offered the role of production assistant for “On the Record w/ Greta Van Susteren”. This proved to be an excellent first experience for Prann – she was involved in a plethora of activities, and had several roles on the show; she was content creator for the program’s official website, and podcast host in addition to her regular production duties, so she was able to quickly learn the ropes of the job in a wide range of roles. She remained in that position for two years, after which she spent some time on the booking desk in Washington, D.C.
Following this, she worked as a producer, reporter and substitute anchor for the Panama City affiliate of NBC, WJHG, before in 2010 re-joining Fox News, this time as an Atlanta-based correspondent. It was during this time at Fox News that Elizabeth became known to the public for her reporting work, namely providing extensive reports during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill catastrophe. She also did live reporting throughout the entire Alabama hostage standoff that happened in 2013, and was present on the scene of the Mississippi River flooding, the severe droughts that struck Georgia, and reported extensively during natural disasters such as Hurricane Irene, Hurricane Issac and Hurricane Sandy.
Recently Prann departed from Fox News and found a new home at HLN. She currently works as a reporter and anchor on CNN’s Headline News’ HLN’s “On the Story” which airs from 12:00pm until 3:00pm, and features a group of rotating anchors including Prann.
Speaking about her personal life, Elizabeth Prann is married to Darren O’Day, a professional baseball relief pitcher for the Atlanta Braves team in Major League Baseball (MLB). Prann’s husband was born in Jacksonville, Florida and is currently 36 years old. The two married on 20th November 2010 at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, and in fact the main reason why Prann left Fox News and moved to HLN is because her husband was traded from the Baltimore Orioles to the Atlanta Braves. The family wanted to stay together, and Prann thought that traveling long distances to work every day would be too demanding and tiring, thus they settled in Atlanta. The couple have two children – their daughter Claire was born in October 2014, and their son Dane in 2017.
So, have you ever wondered just how rich the HLN anchor and reporter actually is? Well, authoritative sources have estimated her net worth is over $1.5 million, acquired from her long-running career in journalism. Her husband Darren has an estimated net worth of $20 million, from his professional baseball career.
