Bianca joined NewsChannel 3 in July 2003. A Navy wife, new to Hampton Roads, she took a position as an Associate Producer to get her foot in the door. It worked. Two months after first walking into the newsroom in Norfolk, she hit the air as the morning traffic reporter. Bianca's work in the traffic center changed the way WTKR did traffic. Instead of doing everything from the studio, she went on location when the job required it. Instead of sitting in the studio during Hurricane Isabel, she was out in the elements at our area bridge tunnels, bringing viewers the story right from the scene.
While reporting traffic was great for honing her live reporting skills, Bianca was a news junkie at heart and was anxious to get out and spend more time in the field and put her journalism skills to work. In January 2005, Bianca hit the street and made the jump to full-time reporter. Not much later she joined the NewsChannel 3 morning team as co-anchor.
Before coming to WTKR, Bianca was a producer at KITV4 in Honolulu, Hawaii. She was responsible for writing, editing, even punching/directing her morning newscasts airing on the ABC affiliate and CNN Headline News. On top of her producing responsibilities, she served as the station voice and interviewed and told the stories of families for the Kapiolani Children's Hospital and Children's Miracle Network. She followed her husband to Hawaii after studying journalism and U.S military history at Penn State University and working a year as a field producer at the NBC affiliate in Washington, DC. The encouragement she received as a fresh faced kid in television has stuck with her for the past eleven years. The reporting experiences there solidified her commitment to telling stories.
It was not the first time Bianca worked with NBC4. In fact, she got her start in the business at that station at the age of 14 as a Teen TV reporter. The work done by the Teen TV team for a special focusing on Teen Violence in 1994 earned the station a large amount of recognition and accolades. She was even featured in the station's 50th Anniversary celebration.
When she's not anchoring or working on her feature, "Do My Military Job," Bianca spends her free time with her husband and their two children. Lucas and Sophia keep her busy with soccer and lots of quality family fun!! Bianca is also a self proclaimed CrossFit addict!
