Chanley Painter Court TV
Chanley has been a legal correspondent at Court TV since January 2019 based in Atlanta, Georgia.

“And I’m going to be the one on location — at the courthouse, as it’s happening.”
After school, Chanley joined her family that had moved to Cleburne County. She started her law practice in Heber Springs and worked part-time as a deputy prosecuting attorney. In 2016, she got her start in television during the murder trial of Realtor Beverly Carter.
“I started at Channel 4 with no journalism background or degree, so I kind of had to learn by doing,” she says. “I started as a legal analyst. … I thought, ‘I enjoy this — this is fun. I’m comfortable in front of the camera.’ So, I thought, ‘What else can I do?’”
Under the direction of KARK and Fox 16 news director Austin Kellerman, she continued working on a freelance basis, learning the ropes while filling in for reporters. Eventually, she was hired full-time as a multimedia reporter.
