Deandra Corinthios couldn’t be happier to be a part of the FOX6 News team! She joined the station as a reporter for FOX6 WakeUp in September 2014.

Deandra comes from just up the road in Green Bay, where she was a reporter and anchor at NBC26 for just over two years. At NBC26 Deandra shot and edited all her own stories. During her time in Titletown, Deandra fell in love with Wisconsin and everything it means to live in this state, even winters in the “Frozen Tundra!”

She got her start as a reporter at WGEM in Quincy, Illinois. There, she covered news in Illinois, Missouri and Iowa. Her award-winning spot news coverage has been recognized by both the Missouri and Illinois Broadcasters Associations.

Deandra is originally from Chicago and graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. She also has a degree in International Studies.

While she has spent a lot of time in the Midwest, Deandra is a first-generation American. Her dad is Egyptian and her mom is Slovenian. She grew up in Geneva, Switzerland, and is fluent in French and Spanish. Deandra also spent six months living and studying in Cairo, Egypt, where she learned to speak Arabic. Most of her family lives in the Middle East.

Deandra loves to ski, hike around Wisconsin’s beautiful state parks and play with her cat Cleo. She’s also a big fan of the Chicago Cubs and Blackhawks. Despite her Chicago roots, she will always cheer on the Packers!
