Adrienne has had many memorable moments in North Texas since joining CBS 11 News including interviewing Oprah Winfrey and guest hosting in the place of Sharon Osbourne on “The Talk.”Something that often surprises viewers: Adrienne is the oldest of seven kids! She had ambitions to be on television as early as 12 years old, but it was in college where Adrienne began hosting talk shows.

After receiving a bachelor’s degree in communication from the University of Southern California, she worked on a freelance basis in Los Angeles as a red carpet correspondent and host on a number of projects including work with PBS and Disney. Prior to living in DFW she worked at NBC affiliate KCRA in Sacramento, where she anchored the morning and noon newscasts.

Adrienne supports many philanthropic efforts and in her spare time endeavors to improve her golf game and go for occasional horseback rides.
