Tucson

Michael Colaianni returns home to the Tucson News Now family after spending two years reporting along the coast of central California.

While covering all sorts of news during his career, Michael has interviewed our nation's top politicians, been live on the scene of breaking news heard around the world, and even managed to save a woman with dementia while out on a story for which he earned a Certificate of Appreciation from the Collier County Sheriffs Office. Michael began his career in Yuma, AZ.

Michael grew up all over the world. Born in Malaysia, he was fortunate enough to live in and visit two dozen countries such as Japan, Egypt, Germany and the Maldives. This overseas experience helped mold Michael's passion for news and getting the truth out to those who need it.

Michael returned to the United States to attend St. Bonaventure University in New York. It is there he earned a bachelors degree in Broadcast Journalism/Mass Communications from the Russel J.Jandoli School of Journalism, where he learned from Pulitzer Prize-winning professors.

Michael is a passionate traveler, and enjoys spending his time off exploring all of the natural beauty Arizona has to offer. If he is not out taking pictures and making memories, you can find him rooting for his favorite sports teams, the Buffalo Bills and New York Yankees.
