Adrienne DiPiazza joined the FOX8 News team in May 2015 and is excited to call the South her new home.

One reason? She’s due for some long, hot summers. Adrienne comes to North Carolina from CBS affiliate WABI-TV5 in Bangor, Maine, where the winters are long and cold.

In Maine, Adrienne did everything from shoot, write, report, anchor and produce. Here in the Piedmont Triad you’ll find her reporting the latest news when you wake up with the FOX8 morning crew.

Adrienne is originally from Silver Spring, Maryland, near Washington, DC, where she spent summers in college interning with local and network TV. She’s also a proud Penn State alum — where she got her start on the Emmy winning Centre County Report.

In her spare time Adrienne loves to cook (espcially Italian), read, do yoga and spend time with family. She’s also a certified scuba diver!
