“Audrey has distinguished herself as an enterprising anchor and reporter, having covered some of New England’s biggest stories,” said Stephanie Adrouny, vp of news for NBC Bay Area. “We’re excited to welcome her back to the Bay Area to be part of our news team and deepen our connection to our community with an added local perspective.”

Asistio grew up in the Peninsula and graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in radio and television with an emphasis in broadcast journalism.
