The art of an interview

Arianna was born and raised in Reno, and a third-generation graduate of Reno High.  As a teenager, she discovered her love for journalism while working on the school newspaper.

Arianna graduated from Northwestern University with a major in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in English Literature.  She has been with 2 News since 2010 and anchors on weeknights at 4:00, 4:30, and 7:00, and contributes investigative reporting and special projects to the newscasts.  She is also the executive producer and host of Face the State, an in-depth news program that airs on weekends.

Arianna is a proud recipient of a regional Edward R. Murrow Award, second place nationally in the AP Awards for feature reporting, and an Emmy for her work on our "Best Local Newscast."  She has also been recognized by the Nevada Association of School Boards for "Excellence in Education Reporting."  She loves doing any story that has an impact, but especially those with passionate, interesting people.

Arianna will interview a mystery guest live on Wednesday!
