Daniela Perallon

Daniela Perallon is an Emmy award winning Reporter for WHNT News 19. She joined the team in December of 2011. She has reported extensively on city government, as well as local elections and education issues throughout the Tennessee Valley.

In 2014, Daniela received her first Midsouth Regional Emmy for her work on the collaborative project "Boys & Girls." The 30 minute special told the story of the wonderful work and service done by the Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama.

She started her career as a reporter/producer for WEHT News 25 in Evansville, Indiana.

Daniela is a proud alum of the University of Florida (Go Gators!). There she reported and produced news for WRUF Sports Radio 850 and Florida's 89.1 WUFT-FM. She also reported for WUFT-TV.

Before starting her professional career, Daniela interned at WUSA9, Washington D.C.'s CBS affiliate. It was there she was mentored by investigative and political reporters, as well as one-man band reporters. It was that Summer that further proved she had chosen the right career path.

In her spare time, Daniela can often be found adventuring around the Tennessee Valley. She has a love for still photography, jogging, politics, music, and her adorable dog Olive and nomad cat Sly Barth.

You can usually catch Daniela on air Monday-Friday on WHNT News 19 at 10:00.

Feel free to email her with your story ideas, feedback, or just to say hello! You can also find her on Twitter @DanielaPerallon.
