First slide

The Arlington Diocese has named Angela Pellerano director of media relations. A bilingual Cuban-American, Pellerano has more than 15 years of experience as an Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist.

"Angela brings to the Diocese of Arlington not only a wealth of experience in broadcast journalism," said Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde, "but a commitment to sharing the church's message of Good News through service to members of the media. Her faith and experience will undoubtedly bear fruit as together, we seek to invite all within the boundaries of this diocese to an encounter with Christ and His church."

Born in Cuba, Pellerano grew up in Miami and attended parochial schools through high school. Following her graduation from Piedmont College, she worked in a number of states and covered a variety of national stories, including campaigns and other high-profile events. Known for her investigative reporting and in-depth interviews, Pellerano's many roles included reporter, weekend news anchor and acting managing editor at CBS 6 News in Richmond; and investigative producer at KARE/NBC 11 News in Minneapolis, CBS 4 in Miami and WSCV 51/Telemundo in Miami.

"I am thrilled and honored to serve the Catholic Diocese of Arlington," Pellerano said. "This is a faith-filled diocese with so many stories of compassion, education, evangelization and service to those on the margins of our society. I look forward to sharing these stories and bringing them to the light of wider audiences."
