Orko Manna is extremely excited to have joined the Local 5 news team as a multimedia journalist in April 2016.

Orko is from a northern suburb of Chicago, where he’s lived most of his life. Orko graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism. While at Northwestern, Orko won several awards through his involvement and eventual leadership as news director for the Emmy award-winning Northwestern News Network.

Orko previously interned for KSTP-TV in Minneapolis, MN and WLNS-TV in Lansing, MI - and he’s thrilled to be able to tell important stories in another Midwest state! He’s excited to explore Des Moines, find the best places to eat, and go running in the outdoor parks.
