Real Men Wear Pink 2019- Darryl Hood

Darryl Hood
Alabama News Network

Darryl Hood is a native of Los Angeles, California. He knew from a young age he wanted to be a broadcast journalist. He is the weeknight news anchor for Alabama News Network on CBS 8 and ABC 32.

Hood is an accomplished award-winning broadcast journalist with two decades of experience as a news anchor and reporter.

A benefit of his career is he’s had the opportunity to live in several cities across the country, including Las Vegas, Denver, Memphis, Columbia, South Carolina, and Montgomery. Along the way he’s made lifelong friends in each of the cities he’s lived in.

He has served the Montgomery viewing area since 2014. Since arriving, he has covered stories on issues that matter to the people who call this area home. As a member of the River Region United Way marketing committee, he has met many people dedicated to serving others in the area. He enjoys discovering what the River Region offers and sharing these stories along the way.

Hood has been fortunate to not have been directly affected by cancer himself or any of his family members. Even so, he knows that could change in the future.

“Raising funds to help people who do need the American Cancer Society’s services is important,” he said. “Just because breast cancer has not affected anyone I know personally, it affects millions of people, and that makes it all of our responsibility to help find a cure.”
