Aileen Hnatiuk works as a sportscaster for WFLA in Tampa, Florida.

She graduated from East Carolina University and began her career in the mid-2010s at WNCN, ESPN, WITN-TV, NBC29, and CBS Sports.

“I am ecstatic to share with y’all I’m joining @WFLA’s talented Sports Team in Tampa as a Sports Reporter. The station I grew up watching! I can’t believe I’m typing that out.
