Adrienne is NewsChannel 9’s Weekend Morning News Anchor and a general assignment reporter during the week. She joined the team in October 2019 while finishing her degree at Ithaca College (Go Bombers!)
Throughout her time at NewsChannel 9, Adrienne has covered a wide range of stories, including the COVID-19 pandemic, a murder-suicide involving an Onondaga County Sheriff’s deputy, the Jordan Brooks case of child abuse and neglect in Oswego County, Micron Technology’s historic $100 billion investment in Central New York, and President Joe Biden’s visit to Onondaga Community College.
In addition to covering the news, Adrienne has made it a priority to ensure equal representation of the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. In May 2020, she was able to present “Asian Americans Standing Strong,” the station’s first AAPI weekly series. Every May, she shares the background, experiences and stories of Asian American Pacific Islanders living and working in Central New York.
Prior to working at WSYR, Adrienne completed internships with The TODAY Show, NBC Owned Television Stations, NBC Sports and the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
A Central New York native, Adrienne grew up in Utica and attended Notre Dame Jr/Sr High School. She then went on to study Television-Radio at the Ithaca College Roy H. Park School of Communications.
While at Ithaca, Adrienne was very active with the college’s student-run television station, ICTV, covering stories throughout Tompkins County, in addition to anchoring their live newscasts and Election Night coverage.
At the age of six months old, Adrienne was adopted from Seoul, Korea into a large and loving family. As a journalist, she hopes to shed a positive light on the many stories surrounding adoption and foster care.
Growing up as an avid Orange fan, Adrienne is thrilled to have started her career in Syracuse! Outside of work, she enjoys riding the Peloton for exercise, traveling, and exploring all of Central New York’s natural beauty…even the snow!
In addition to spending time with family and friends, Adrienne considers herself a “foodie”, with a special fondness for Chicken Riggies and Utica Greens.
