Yanni Tragellis joined ABC6 as a news reporter in May 2022.
Prior to coming to Providence, Yanni was a news reporter at WTAJ in Central Pennsylvania. While at WTAJ, he covered stories like the DEA shutting down a major cross-country drug trafficking pipeline out of Pennsylvania, as well as other crime stories.
A 2021 Quinnipiac University graduate, Yanni is excited to be back in New England. Growing up just 40 minutes away in Medfield, MA, Yanni is no stranger to the Providence area, and is excited to share local stories happening in the community.
In his free time, you can find him exercising and enjoying the beach, trying out local coffee shops, (feel free to send recommendations) and watching all the New England sports teams. If you have a story idea for Yanni, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
