Jilliana Colina joined the Local News 8 Team in April 2019. She was born and raised in Houston, Texas and proudly graduated from the University of Houston (GO COOGS!) in December 2018.
During her time at the University of Houston, she had fun anchoring the news and entertainment news shows.
The highlight of her career has been during her internship at KPRC- the NBC affiliate in Houston, where she gained hands-on experience on all things news in a busy city! She got to cover Houston coming together after the devastation from Hurricane Harvey and the glorious Astros World Series win in 2017.
In August 2018, she married her best friend, a Chief’s football fanatic named Garrett. He is the sweetest treat life has offered her. Together they made the move to Idaho and are excited to be part of the community!
