Tricia began her career as a sports broadcaster when she was a student at Indiana University. She was raised in Bloomington and fell in love with college basketball in the state of Indiana. She got her start covering Indiana Basketball and the Indiana Pacers as an intern doing web reporting. She graduated in 2012 from Indiana with a degree in communication.
Tricia’s first job out of college was at ABC in Green Bay Wisconsin covering the Green Bay Packers. She started at WTTV in December of 2014 and is so excited to be covering sports in a state she grew up loving.
When Tricia is not reporting she loves spending time with her family who still live in Bloomington. She is a lover of coffee and musical theater. You can always hear her humming in the office, as music and singing have been a passion ever since she was a young girl singing into her hairbrush in the mirror.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The highlight of Indiana’s Senior Night wasn’t Devonte Green’s buzzer-beater at halftime to cap off the Hoosiers’ 22-0 run. Nor was it Thomas Bryant’s dunk while being fouled.
