Morning Edition Anchor/Executive Producer
Ariane Aramburo anchors the Morning Edition weekdays on KTUU/KYES and the Noon News on KYES. Ariane is a 3x Emmy-nominated anchor with 13 years broadcast experience. Her naturally, smooth on-camera presence as an anchor, lifestyle host and reporter is what she's known for in the industry. She was named Alaska Broadcaster of the Year in 2016 and Top 40 Under 40, but perhaps Ariane's most notable achievement was opening up about her struggle with Postpartum Depression after the birth of her daughter in 2015. Ariane used her voice as a platform to shed light on a taboo topic, which ignited a passion for helping others. The result was a months-long personal and journalistic endeavor that culminated in a powerful four-part series and a one-hour special. Ariane's reporting touched off an overwhelming response from local moms, and even caught the attention of Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski who cited her reporting on the Senate floor in Washington D.C in support of Federal PPD legislation, which passed in 2016. Her battle with PPD also ignited a spark within her to start her own fitness journey. She lives in Anchorage with her daughter, Amelia.
