Christina Pascucci is an Emmy Award- nominated journalist, licensed pilot, and humanitarian who has worked at KTLA since 2011.

Christina, who serves as a reporter and fill-in anchor for LA’s No. 1 morning news, loves people. Her vision is to continually effect positive change, particularly in human rights and environmental issues.
She has dived with hundreds of sharks, including great whites, to expose the shark finning industry.

She traveled to Palau, an island nation near the Philippines in late 2016 to sit down with President Thomas Remengesau and discuss how other countries can emulate what Palau is doing on the front lines of climate change.

Her 2015 investigative reporting into the wasteful water-use policies of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power resulted in the agency changing its policy to potentially save millions of gallons of water.

One of her most memorable KTLA reports was when she was invited to the Dalai Lama’s palace in India for an exclusive interview with his Holiness.

Christina fell in love with the Children of War Foundation while on assignment in 2014, when she met a young Afghani girl who was receiving life-changing surgery in Los Angeles after stepping on an IED near her war-ravaged home. Christina now serves as Director of Communications for the organization.

She is also an ambassador to 88 Bikes, a non-profit that fights child sex trafficking around the globe.
