tina cropI’m happy to call the Emerald City my new home after living in the desert southwest the last few years —  I had almost forgotten what trees looked like!

I was born and raised in New Jersey, but moved west to attend the University of Southern California. I’m still a die hard Trojan and will proudly sport my cardinal and gold up here in Husky country.

My TV career has taken me around the country — I’ve reported and anchored in the San Bernardino and Palm Springs regions of California, North Texas, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. I also spent the last five years working in Las Vegas, where I became somewhat of an expert on casino buffets.

But now, my husband and I are excited to explore the dining options here in the Pacific Northwest. We’re also big sports fans, so expect to see us rooting on the Seahawks when they plan anyone but my beloved Philadelphia Eagles.

You can see me reporting on Q13 FOX News at 9 and 10 p.m., and anchoring Fridays with Matt Lorch. Feel free to connect with me at tina@q13fox.com.
