Arianna grew up in Reno and graduated from Reno High. She first discovered her love for journalism while working on the school newspaper, The Red & Blue.
Arianna graduated from Northwestern University with a major in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in English Literature. She got her start reporting in Montana at KULR-TV in Billings, but she couldn't wait to get back to her hometown. She has been with 2 News since 2010. She anchors 2 News on weeknights at 4:00, 4:30, 7:00, and 11:00. She is also the executive producer and host of Face the State, an in-depth news program that airs on weekends.
When Arianna graduated from journalism school, the university president thanked the graduates for participating in a field that is "so essential to a functioning democracy." Arianna is proud to work in the "fourth estate," and even more proud to be doing it in her hometown.
Arianna lives with her husband, Andrew, and their dog, Cake, in Reno. Alongside journalism, Arianna loves tea (of all kinds), traveling to new places (and eating their food), binge-reading any novel she can get her hands on, practicing yoga, and hiking in the prettiest parts of Northern Nevada. She harbors a healthy obsession with Lake Tahoe, and thinks that living this close to it is just about as good as it gets. Arianna is also an alumna of Kappa Alpha Theta, and a member of the Secret Witness Board of Directors.
