Zara Arboleda is the lead investigative reporter for CBS47 Eyewitness News.
She's a California native, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area…and a proud graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism.
She started as a one-man-bander in Columbia, Missouri, before heading back to California. She was weekend anchor at KBAK in Bakersfield before moving up the 99 to launch a weekend morning show at KSEE24 in Fresno, then moving over to CBS47, where she anchored evening and morning newscasts.
Zara has been nominated for a Regional Emmy award, and has won several industry honors, including Associated Press honors for "best live news coverage" and "best anchor team", and AP’s Mark Twain award for “best newscast” three years running. Zara loves to run, recently completing half-marathons and raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Team in Training" program. But she spends most of her time running after her two young children.
