Gina Lazara has wanted to be a television news reporter for as long as she can remember. She has always been passionate about storytelling and loves being the first one to know the news!

Gina graduated from Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. She earned her degree in broadcast journalism with two minors in political science and child & family studies. She was born and raised up the road from Syracuse making her a lifelong 'Cuse fan! Go Orange!

During her time in college, Gina interned twice with Syracuse's ABC station, WSYR-TV. When she was a junior, she studied abroad in Florence, Italy. There, she interned with an Italian online news station, FlorenceTV, where she was their English reporter. The summer before her senior year, she interned with FOX 5 New York/WNYW-TV. She loved being able to experience the really fast-paced news life in NYC!
