Karapetyan joined KTTV last year as a general assignment reporter after previous stints in Portland, Ore., and Idaho Falls, Idaho. A graduate of Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, she launched her TV career as an intern at KABC-TV Channel 7 in L.A.

In a statement released by the Fox-owned station, Karapetyan suggested that adapting to the early-morning newscast had been a challenge. "I used to go to bed at 1:45 a.m.," she said, "not wake up at that time!"
