Cassandra Arsenault joined the FOX 17 team in July 2014.
Before making the move to the west side of the state, Arsenault was a reporter at KION Central Coast News, the CBS affiliate in Monterey, California where she covered crime, gangs, and the wonders of the sea life the coast has to offer like the starfish wasting disease.
Before landing a job in the reporting world, Arsenault started as a live producer and assistant for Lara Spencer for Good Morning America, where she worked on the set every day. A year later she jumped to Nightline where she took a production role traveling the United States and producing some of her own pieces, and working closely with anchor Cynthia McFadden, one of her biggest mentors.
Arsenault graduated from New York University with a degree in both communications and film. While attending school she interned in the communications mecca of the United states with internships at MTV, ABC’S 20/20, CBS Radio, and Good Morning America.
Originally from the Boston Area, (Go Red Sox!) coming to West Michigan is a new adventure, one she’s loving more every day.
She’s looking forward to getting to know West Michigan viewers and telling their stories.
