What’s on your Summer #CTBucketList?

Louisa Moller is a general assignment and investigative reporter for Fox Connecticut. Her great love is to tell stories that can help real people by informing them of issues impacting their families, safety, and their wallets.

In the past two years, Louisa has had many opportunities to do just that. She provided continuing coverage of both the tragic Sandy Hook shooting and the Boston Marathon Bombings. Louisa reported live, nightly, with hard facts and deep compassion.

She also dug deeper into some of Connecticut’s and the nation’s most publicized stories. She uncovered an interesting exception in the State’s controversial gun law allowing for the purchase, sale, and transfer of assault weapons. And, she revealed that Connecticut’s health insurance exchange through the Affordable Care Act was flawed throughout its first month. Louisa also used her connections with many of Connecticut’s veterans to expose structural issues in the State and Federal Departments of Veterans Affairs.

Louisa started her television career in 2009 as a full-time “one man band”, shooting, writing, and editing stories for WTHI the CBS affiliate in Terre Haute, Indiana. It was there where she first gained an appreciation for quality and creative video. In 2011, Louisa traveled to the Green Mountain State, where she worked as a general assignment reporter at WFFF Fox 44 in Burlington, Vermont. In Vermont, she got her first taste of investigative reporting by uncovering allegations of fraud and abuse in a Federal Job Corps program.

Out of the office, Louisa continues to enjoy being involved in her community. She has MC-ed several events in Connecticut for victim’s services, medical research, and veterans. When she’s not doing that, you can find her spending a lot of time with her family, enjoying the outdoors, and singing.
