Email Isabella

Isabella Hulsizer graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University in May 2020 with a degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in political science. Isabella quickly realized that weather was her passion, and she’s pursuing a degree in broadcast and operational meteorology from Mississippi State University. She is from Chandler, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix. She has pride for all Arizona sports, despite their track record. Throughout her college career she reported politics, sustainability and weather in her professional program at ASU, Cronkite News. She also interned at KPNX in Phoenix, the Arizona Republic and KJZZ 91.5 the NPR affiliate station. In the summer of 2019, Isabella interned at WCCO in Minneapolis. She fell in love with the Midwest and made it her goal to come back.

In her free time, she enjoys hiking, discovering new music and testing out coffee shops. She loves all things glitter and has no shame advocating for the Oxford comma.

Favorite song: Pocket Full of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield

Do you have a personal motto or quote that inspires you? “On tough days it helps to remember that every single time I thought I wasn’t going to make it… I was wrong.”

If you could interview one person, living or deceased, who would that be? Definitely Oprah. She has the most interesting life, along with the best advice. Also crossing my fingers she’d give me a new car.

What sports team are you a big fan of? Please, please, PLEASE don’t hate me… I am a Minnesota Vikings & Arizona Cardinals fan!

Favorite food: Stuffed rigatoni with chicken from Oregano’s. If you ever visit Arizona, it’s a must-have.

What do you like about your job? My favorite part of my job is getting to talk to people from all walks of life. Everyone has a little marble of information special to them, and I love collecting those marbles.

Pizza: Sausage, pepperoni or everything on it? Half cheese, half pepperoni. I’m a very plain gal!

Family: My parents live in Chandler, Arizona and my younger brother is a Navy Sailor. We may be spread apart, but our strong bond makes it feel as if there is no distance at all.
