Although Gabrielle Komorowski's television news career began far from warm temperatures, she is thrilled to be back in the Carolinas. It's a part of the country she fell in love with while attending college at Elon University in North Carolina.
Gabrielle joined the WYFF 4 family in September of 2010 as the co-anchor of WYFF News 4 at 5 and 5:30 p.m. She came from another Hearst Television station, WPTZ, in Plattsburgh, N.Y. where she worked first as a weekend anchor, and then on their morning broadcasts for two years before being promoted to the 5:30 pm anchor/reporter position. One of Gabrielle's most memorable stories at WPTZ required her to carry around every piece of trash she produced for a week. The smelly experience earned Gabrielle an Associated Press Award for Best Feature Reporting.
Gabrielle got her start in television news at KEYC in Mankato, Minnesota. She was a weekend anchor and reporter and was a "one man band," shooting, writing, and editing stories herself as well as producing and anchoring newscasts.
Gabrielle was born in New Jersey, but calls Orlando, Florida home. Her family moved to Orlando right before she started high school. As a teenager, Gabrielle worked at Universal Studios Florida, taking surveys. She says the job prepared her for a career that often requires approaching people and asking them questions.
Gabrielle graduated from Elon University with a BA in Broadcast Communications and a minor in French. She spent a semester studying at the Sorbonne University in Paris.
When Gabrielle is not reporting and anchoring the news, she enjoys horseback riding, playing tennis, reading, trying out new recipes in the kitchen, and traveling to new places.
