Allison Rodriguez is a Multimedia journalist for ABC15 News. She joined the team in September 2013.
Allison didn’t have to travel far to her new home in Phoenix. She spent two years at KYMA in Yuma anchoring and producing the weekday primetime newscasts.
She was on the anchor desk for many of the more recent big headlines, including the Jodi Arias verdict and Yarnell Hill Fire deaths.
Being so close to the California and Mexico borders, Allison was able to cover a wide-range of stories that crossed state and international lines in both English and Spanish.
Allison was born in Chicago and raised in the city and Northwest suburbs. She obtained her Bachelor’s Degree from Columbia College Chicago. Growing up, her parents stressed the importance of volunteering and charity. She’s an active supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness and still looking for more ways to volunteer her time.
When she’s not chasing down stories, she’s video chatting with her family back east, taking in a show, dancing or hitting the movie theaters.
She feels so blessed to be able to stay in Arizona. Her family says they’ll be sure to visit her during the winter months.
