Adriana Diaz -- Host


Before hosting "Trending Now" on Yahoo! News, Adriana reported at Channel One News, a daily news program partnered with CBS News that broadcasts in schools across the country, reaching 6 million viewers.  At Channel One, Adriana wrote, shot and edited her own stories, including coverage of the earthquake in Haiti and the Chilean miners' rescue. You can see more of Adriana's reporting here.

As a Dominican-American, Adriana has always loved learning about different cultures.  She speaks three foreign languages (Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and French, in case you're curious!), and she is a former Miss New York USA.  Before joining Channel One, Adriana worked on Wall Street at Goldman Sachs and interned at CNN's Beijing Bureau. She earned a Master's from Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs and L'Institut d'Études Politiques in Paris (a.k.a. Sciences Po), and she studied International Relations and Chinese as an undergraduate at Princeton University. She has dreamed of helping inform people about current events since she watched the attacks of September 11th from her social studies classroom window at Stuyvesant High School in New York City.
