Araksya Karapetyan Joins FOX 11 Morning News Anchor Desk

Not long ago on Twitter, KFI AM 640 newscaster Aron Bender was singing the praises of Katherine Timpf, a one-time intern at the station making a big splash at Fox News with her exclusive coverage of some Facebook foolery. Today, a separate KFI-to-FOX success story continues.

Araksya Karapetyan (pictured), who started out during her college years interning at both KFI and KABC-TV, has been promoted to full-time anchor with the FOX 11 Morning News.* She joined the station last year as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor, where she had been contributing to the 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. weekday newscasts as well as Studio 11 LA.

The Newhouse School grad will anchor weekday newscasts from 4:30 to 7:00 a.m. and again from 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., as well as continue to contribute to Good Day LA. From today’s announcement:

“Araksya’s smart and in-depth reporting is matched by her exceptional commitment to the community,” said Kingsley Smith, FOX 11 vp and news director. “She has an extraordinary work ethic and has quickly made a name for herself in this area as a reporter who tells compelling stories about everyday people.”
