Daniela Perallon

Daniela Perallon joined WHNT News 19 in December of 2011. She started her career as a reporter/producer for News 25 in Evansville, Indiana.

Daniela is a born-and-raised Floridian. She grew up in a home where news and politics were always the major topics of discussion. While at first distressed that her parents would prefer her to watch the news rather than Nickelodeon, she soon developed a passion for news and politics. Once she decided she was going to be a reporter, there was no looking back.

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 spent time reporting for WUFT TV. In the summer of 2010 Daniela had the privilege to study abroad in London, where she reported on the country's transition to a coalition government. She is also proud to have been a part in the UF Center for Media Innovation and Research's first student-run Midterm election night coverage.

In her spare time, Daniela likes to think she is the next greatest chef and can often be found experimenting in the kitchen. She also has a love for still photography, jogging, and music.

Daniela would love for you to email her your story ideas and feedback. You can also finder her on Twitter @DanielaPerallon.
