Ariane Aramburo joined KTUU in June 2014 as the Executive Producer and co-anchor of "The Morning Edition." You can catch her weekday mornings from 5:30 to 7:00 a.m., with Nikki Carvajal, MJ Thim and David George.

Ariane grew up in Eagle River and is a graduate of Chugiak High School. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism. Ariane landed her first on-air job at KQTV in St. Joseph, Missouri. In April 2011, she moved to Norfolk, Virginia to take the job as a lifestyle an entertainment show host at WAVY-TV 10 called "The Hampton Roads Show." Ariane was known for her magnetic personality, professionalism and charismatic approach as she regularly interviewed celebrities, athletes, comedians, musicians, chefs and others on the program.

Ariane and her husband moved back to Anchorage in May 2014 to continue her career on the Morning Edition. In the fall of 2015, she became a new mom. This joyful occasion was soon followed by darkness as Ariane struggled with symptoms of Postpartum Depression. She quickly learned that the support network for PPD in Alaska is very limited. As she struggled to understand what she was feeling, she also struggled to find help from healthcare providers. Ariane also learned that Alaska's rate of PPD far exceeds the national average. Ariane's very personal struggles and her subsequent research ignited a passion to help others. Upon returning to work after maternity leave, she launched an extensive effort to shine a light on Postpartum Depression, the risks, the healthcare options and the people this condition has affected, sometimes with tragic consequences. The result was a months-long personal and journalistic endeavor that culminated in a powerful four-part series and a one-hour special. Ariane's reporting touched off an overwhelming response from local moms, and even caught the attention of Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski who cited her reporting on the Senate floor in Washington D.C. in support of Federal PPD legislation, which passed in 2016. In October 2016, Ariane traveled to the Postpartum Progress Warrior Mom Conference in Atlanta to serve as a keynote speaker on the topic of Postpartum Depression. She was also named the 2016 Alaska Broadcaster of the Year by the Alaska Broadcasters Association.

Ariane lives in Anchorage with her husband, Jules, and daughter, Amelia.
