Rob DiRienzo

Rob DiRienzo joined the FOX 5 Atlanta news team in November 2020.

Before coming to Atlanta, he travelled the country covering the 2020 presidential election as a multimedia reporter for the Fox News Channel.

From the moment former Vice President Joe Biden announced his candidacy in Pittsburgh, Pa., through the New Hampshire primaries, all the way to the moment Biden accepted his party's nomination in Wilmington, Del., Rob was there on the ground.

Rob also extensively covered the college admissions scandal in Boston and the legal fallout that followed. At the onset of the coronavirus lockdown, Rob broke the news that tens of thousands of Americans were trapped abroad without a way to get back home. He also put a national spotlight on the eviction crisis and food crisis that intensified because of the pandemic.

Previously, Rob spent his days high above New York City as an airborne reporter aboard WNBC-TV's Chopper 4. He got his start in journalism at the age of 14 at WRNJ-AM, a small radio station in his hometown of Hackettstown, NJ. Later, while studying journalism and political science at Temple University in Philadelphia, he joined FOX 5's sister station FOX 29 as a junior reporter for Good Day Philadelphia.

When he's not at work, Rob loves playing hide-and-seek with his nieces and nephews, long walks through the city, and meeting new dogs in the process. He is obsessed with all kinds of music. Bruce Springsteen, Biggie Smalls, and Miles Davis are some of his all-time favorites.
