Arielle Harrison is the morning anchor for KIMT’s DayBreak and MidDay shows.
She joins us from KMVT in southern Idaho, where she worked as an anchor/producer/reporter for two years.
Arielle was born and raised in the state known for its mountainous views and snow — Utah (the best snow on earth). While Utah will always be home, she’s excited to plant her roots and make room in her heart for the Midwest.
Arielle loves spending time with her family and playing with her nephews. She especially enjoys soccer. She grew up watching her older siblings play, and then also played competitively as a youth and teen.
Arielle comes from a rich heritage of die-hard Brigham Young University Cougar fans and alumni. To carry on the family tradition, she too attended the Provo, Utah, university. A graduate of BYU’s broadcast journalism program, she took part in the production and execution of many “KBYU Eleven News” newscasts, a show awarded with the Society of Professional Journalists’ 2012 national award for “Best All-Around Television Newscast.” She also hosted a nationally televised show, “BYU Weekly,” which aired on BYUtv. In addition, she interned at “Good Things Utah,” a morning show for the ABC affiliate in Salt Lake City.
Arielle is always asking questions and has a passion for learning and spreading news. She’s had the “news bug” for a long time now and doesn’t anticipate being cured any time soon! She enjoys getting to know individuals, hearing their stories and sharing those stories with others. Arielle is excited to be here and thrilled to find out what this “Iowa Nice” and “Minnesota Nice” hype is all about!
