Ariel Schiller joined the News4Jax team as an evening reporter in September of 2023. She comes to Jacksonville from Tallahassee where she worked at ABC27 as a Weekend Anchor/Reporter for 10 months.
Before that she worked in Macon, Georgia for two years as a Reporter and Fill-In Anchor for 41NBC. During that time she covered elections on every level, the community pushback of a plastics to fuel facility, the effects of a federal tax lien placed on the city of Warner Robins, and the growing economy of local cities around the region.
She started her news career in Greenville, South Carolina working as a photojournalist for Fox Carolina for four years. She was on the team that won a Southeast Emmy for their coverage of Hurricane Dorian. It was there she decided to transform her talents to on-air reporting, because her passion is telling stories that matter to the community.
Ariel is no stranger to the Sunshine State, she was born and raised in Boca Raton, Florida. She graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Mass Communications in 2014.
She's excited to continue her journalism career in the River City and make Jacksonville her new home. When she’s not at work she can be found hanging out with her fur babies, doing a fun workout, or exploring her new home. She also loves a good TV binge with shows like The Office, Friends, and Golden Girls.
