Danielle Serino Joins Channel 3 News

Danielle Serino
Journalist Danielle Serino is joining the Channel 3 News team as a consumer investigative reporter and multi-skilled journalist.

WKYC News Director Brennan Donnellan tells the Director's Cut Blog that Danielle will lead the station's Verify segments where "we look for transparency in how we follow a story and fact-checking, especially important in this era of fake news and social media."

Serino is an Emmy Award Winning Anchor and Investigative Reporter who has worked in major news markets including Miami, Chicago and New York, where she was filling-in as an Anchor for Early Today on NBC.

Most recently she worked at WOIO in Cleveland as the afternoon Anchor and Investigative Consumer Reporter.

Danielle began her Television career as a Field Producer for a show called "Real Stories of the Highway Patrol" where she followed the Vice Squad in Newark, New Jersey answering 911 calls. After that, she went a more traditional route and began writing for a 24 hour news outlet called News 12 in New York, eventually finessing her way to an on air reporting job.

Her next stop was WAMI in Miami where she began her work as an Investigative Reporter, covering social issues for a news program called The Times. It was there that she won an Emmy for a series on the 25th Anniversary of the Mariel Boat Lift.

Danielle then became a Midwesterner, heading to FOX Chicago where she led her own Investigative Consumer segment which was nominated for multiple Emmy Awards. She reported on everything from unscrupulous businesses which she put into “Danielle’s Doghouse” and tested infomercial products for a segment called "Does It Work Danielle?”.

She made the decision to “bring her talents” to Cleveland where she continued her Investigative Consumer Reporting, as well as anchoring the 4:30 and 5:30pm newscasts for 19 Action News. She also regularly filled in on WTAM for the “Spew” where she battled Mike Trivisonno over current events.

During her time here she has been actively involved in several non-profits including Frontline Service which reaches out to adults and children in Northeast Ohio to end homelessness, prevent suicide, resolve behavioral health crises, and overcome trauma. She also works with Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio a program which builds social awareness, confidence and self-esteem in young students through Ballroom dancing.

Danielle is not all work and no play though. She’s an adventure seeker who has traveled the world, backpacking through the Middle East, rappelling waterfalls in St. Lucia, parachuting and bungee jumping. She is also an avid Salsa Dancer.
