Title: Multimedia journalist

Annalisa is a multimedia journalist with a passion for news and storytelling. She joined KIMT in October of 2017 and, originally being from the San Francisco Bay Area, is excited to call the Midwest her new home.

Annalisa mostly reports for the morning newscast, Daybreak, and can also be seen filling in at the anchor desk from time to time.

During her time at KIMT, she's covered President Donald Trump's visit to Rochester, a number of severe storms, and colorful features telling stories at the heart of the community. Her live reporting on a winter storm in 2018 helped Daybreak earn a Midwest Emmy.

Before moving to Minnesota, Annalisa was a multimedia journalist intern based in Washington D.C., reporting for KSEE-TV and KGPE-TV in Fresno, CA. She reported on stories from the nation's capital that impacted the people of Fresno including healthcare protests and community members traveling to D.C. to participate in a clean air protest.

Annalisa got her Masters of Science in Broadcast and Digital Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School at Syracuse University. While at Newhouse, she was part of the New York State Associated Press award-winning show, “Mornings on the Hill.” She received her Bachelor of the Arts in Political Science at Loyola Marymount University while pursuing a minor in dance.

When Annalisa is not reporting she enjoys dancing, reading, and spending time with her friends and family!

She is excited to join the Minnesota-Iowa community and to be a part of the KIMT team. Email story ideas, anything you want her to look into, or just say hi at
