Dina Kupfer joined News 10 in December 2012. She co-anchors News10 Good Morning Weekends with Walt Gray. During the weekdays you can catch her reporting bright and early on our morning shows.

Dina graduated from the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!), where she earned her degree in Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Sports Business. Dina spent most of her younger years in Reno, Nev., but she is no stranger to The Golden State. As a child, her dad's retail management job took them all over Northern California, including Shingle Springs, Sacramento, Vacaville and Susanville.

Dina began her television career at KRNV in Reno where she anchored news, sports and weather. She reported on notable stories such as the Reno Air Races crash in 2011; she was also on the fire lines during major wildfires including the Caughlin and Washoe Drive fires. During her time as a Sports Anchor, Dina covered Colin Kaepernick's college years at Nevada, and she anchored the weekly high school football show, 'Friday Night Lights'.

Dina wanted to be a news broadcaster since she was a little girl, and she is thrilled to be covering the latest news, weather and sports stories here in California's capital.

"My passion is telling stories and being an advocate for the community."

When she's not working, Dina likes to travel and explore the region running, wake boarding, dancing, rafting, hiking and camping.

"Lake Tahoe is has a piece of my heart. In the summer, you can catch me kayaking or biking the beautiful trails around the Lake, and in the winter I love playing in the snow on skis or snowshoes."

Dina also enjoys spending time with her fiancé and their adorable French Bulldog Brewski.
