Lina joined 3TV and CBS 5 in June 2015. Before coming back to her hometown of Phoenix, Lina was the evening anchor for WEAR ABC 3 in Pensacola.

    There, she covered tropical storms and a fatal explosion at the county jail. As the primary anchor, she covered the desk for 12 hours during a storm that dumped more than 26 inches of rain in the area in less than 24 hours.

    In her nearly five years on the Gulf Coast, Lina worked as the traffic reporter, morning anchor and evening anchor.

    Before leaving Phoenix, Lina started in the 3TV newsroom as an intern during her senior year at Arizona State University. Lina also represented her home state of Arizona at the Miss USA pageant and is happy to be back in the Valley with her husband.
