COLUMBUS, Ohio — After more than 15 years at WBNS 10TV, Anchor Karina Nova is heading west for an amazing new opportunity.

Nova graduated from Kent State and began as a traffic reporter for the station in 2006. She spent several years anchoring the weekend morning news and most recently with the Wake Up CBUS team. She is grateful for all of it.

“Many of you watched me start out as a nervous traffic reporter in 2006 and work my way up to anchor. I’ll forever be grateful to 10TV for giving me that opportunity… It’s hard to describe how much the love and support I received over 15 years means to me. It’s bittersweet for me to leave and I know I’ll miss my friends, viewers and the city every day."

In her time at 10TV she has won an Ohio Valley Regional Emmy for coverage of the 2012 train derailment, has been an avid promoter of our parks, mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters and sat on the board of the Columbus Fashion Council, along with devoting her free time to many other local nonprofits.

“We are sad to see Karina leave 10TV but we couldn’t be happier and prouder of her.  She will be missed by her colleagues and viewers,” John Cardenas, President and General Manager, WBNS.

Nova will be heading across the country to join a television station in San Francisco.

But for her, Columbus will always be home. She will be cheering on the Buckeyes from afar.

“The people I met here and the organizations I’ve been a part of, those will always stay with me. I’ve become a better person because of the kind and generous people here who have impacted my life living in Central Ohio.”

Her last day on air is Jan. 24.
