Adrienne DiPiazza is very excited to make Cleveland her new home! Adrienne joined FOX 8 as a reporter in September 2017. She spent the last two years at FOX 8’s sister station, WGHP-TV, in Greensboro, North Carolina.

In North Carolina, Adrienne started out working the morning show where she covered breaking news before the sun came up. She then moved to the night shift and reported on major state news like the Hurricane Matthew aftermath, Charlotte Riots, 2016 presidential campaigns and Western North Carolina wildfires.

Adrienne got her start as a Multimedia Journalist at WABI-TV5 in Bangor, Maine, where she reported on everything from car-moose accidents, the lobster industry and of course, cold, cold winters. There she shot, wrote and edited her own stories. She also became the weekend anchor, producer and assignment editor.

Adrienne developed her love of TV-news while a student at Penn State University. There she majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in English and Business. She was a reporter, anchor and executive producer of the Emmy-award winning Centre County Report. She got her first taste of the business as an intern at WTAJ-TV in Altoona, PA and at WJLA-TV in Washington, D.C.

Adrienne spent her childhood in Silver Spring, MD where she did ballet, swim team and was active at church and school.

In her spare time she loves to read, cook Italian food, do yoga, hike and travel with her husband, Matt. Have a story idea? See something strange? Let Adrienne know!
