Olivia Fierro joined FOX5 News in April 2009 as the color-coordinating co-anchor of John Huck on FOX5 News at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. She is also the co-host of FOX5 Fight Night - a live, local news special on nights of UFC on FOX.
Fierro came to fabulous Las Vegas, always one of her favorite places, from Phoenix. In seven years on the air in the Grand Canyon State, she reported, anchored on weekends, mornings and mid-days and even filled in on weather.
Her big break came by way of ProNews7 in Amarillo, TX, where she spent two years learning the ropes of the business through a series of mistakes and awkward on-air silences as a reporter and morning-and-noon anchor.
Before launching her career in front of the camera, Fierro worked her way up from intern to writer and field producer at FOX11 in Los Angeles. She started her full-time position there shortly after graduating from UCLA, earning dual majors in history and women's studies. She also studied broadcast journalism through UCLA's Extension Program.
Olivia and her husband, Tony, were blessed to adopt their son, Nathaniel, in April 2012, through Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada. She chronicled her battle with infertility and path to motherhood for Las Vegas Woman magazine, hoping to inspire more families to consider adoption.
Olivia has been featured in a number of other publications, including Luxury Las Vegas magazine, The Vegas Dog, with her handsome dog, Robaire, Arizona Dog, The Wedding Chronicle, Phoenix Magazine and 944.
She is a proud member of the Board of Directors for Dress for Success of Southern Nevada, and gives her time in support of a number of non-profits in the valley as volunteer or emcee, including Boys & Girls Club of Las Vegas, Catholic Charities, Baby's Bounty, Ronald McDonald House Charities and March of Dimes.
Fierro feels lucky to have the chance to be a part of people's lives and treasures the responsibility of keeping them informed and connected.
