Nataly Tavidian is ecstatic to be back in her native California. She comes to us from the ABC affiliate in Central Nebraska.

News has always been a part of her life. It was in middle school she decided to chase her dreams. Nataly feels blessed to be living her dream job.

A 2010 graduate from the University of California, Riverside, and Nataly received a dual degree in Political Science and Communications Studies. She anchored and reported for KHGI-TV, the ABC affiliate in Central Nebraska. Prior to moving to the “Good Life” state Nataly was an intern at KABC TV working with news and entertainment including KABC TV’s OTRC and later a reporter for Crown City News covering Pasadena, and experienced Northern California as a writer and intern for the Southern California Public Radio’s Sacramento bureau where she covered state politics.

Nataly says the California’s central coast feels like “home sweet home.” Although traveling for news and experiencing Nebraska had  many positive moments  Nataly missed the ocean and mountains. “Sun and Sea” is all you really need to be happy she says  and Nataly couldn’t be happier to live somewhere where there is an abundance of both.

In her spare time Nataly likes to teach Zumba go hiking and workout, visit family in Los Angeles, travel and meet new people. Nataly speaks fluent Armenian.

She’d love to hear from you if you have any story ideas or want to say hello find her on Twitter and Facebook or by e-mail.
