Nina DeSarro is a multi-skilled journalist and anchor at 13 ON YOUR SIDE in Grand Rapids, Mich.

She specializes in general assignment reporting, but really enjoys investigative reporting. She came to Grand Rapids after spending two years in Lubbock, Texas as a reporter for KJTV.

A South Florida native, she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Interpersonal Organizational Communication from the University of Central Florida. Go Knights!

During school, Nina interned as a digital reporter with WESH 2 in Orlando. She competed nationally in speech and debate and knew very early on that she wanted to be a journalist. She's bilingual, speaking Spanish and English.

Nina grew up in Ft. Lauderdale near the beach, so being close to Lake Michigan is a huge plus! She’s a coffee, yoga and animal lover. She's obsessed with her diva dog, named Sadie. You can find copious photos of her 3-year-old pooch on social media.
