Ana Rivera - Reporter at ABC11 WTVD
Ana Rivera joined the ABC11 Eyewitness News team in July 2018 and she's waking up with you bright and early! You can see her reports from 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. She also reports from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Before moving to the Triangle, Ana worked in the land of bourbon and fast horses-Louisville, KY. During her time in Louisville, Ana worked as an 11 p.m. reporter and fill-in anchor at the ABC affiliate WHAS11. She covered a variety of stories in the Bluegrass state including rising crime rates and she even got to meet country star Garth Brooks!

Ana's reporting career started at the WUTR in Utica, NY. She interviewed numerous baseball greats in Cooperstown and battled snowstorms.

Ana bleeds Orange! She was a dual -major in broadcast journalism and political science at Syracuse University. She's excited to see her Orange take on Duke, UNC, Wake Forest and NC State in some big ACC match-ups.

When Ana is not reporting she loves spending time at the beach. She grew up in Delaware so east coast beaches feel like home to her. Ana and her husband live in Raleigh and love trying local restaurants and exploring the Triangle.
