Alissa Pietila

Alissa is a Yooper from the the tiny town of Paulding who enjoys spending time with her family, nature in all forms and proper grammar and punctuation.

She spent her childhood years in western Upper Michigan and attended college at Finlandia University in Hancock, studying Communication and Psychology.

She has been employed with WLUC-TV6 & FOX UP since September 2016 and a Marquette resident just as long.

In Marquette, Alissa loves the easy access to Lake Superior, hiking trails, great restaurants and local breweries.

At TV6, Alissa manages the social media pages and website, along with training new reporters on the ins and outs of those two things. She also has a daily on-air segment (at least pre-coronavirus) on TV6 First Look, which airs at 5 p.m. eastern time each weekday.
