Tresa Tudrick is a distinguished sports anchor and reporter, holding the honor of being a two-time Emmy award winner. She made history by becoming the first female sports reporter to join Arizona’s Family after the merger of two stations. Tresa Tudrick officially joined the 3TV/CBS5 sports team in July 2019, although she was already well-acquainted with Arizona.
Before joining 3TV/CBS5, Tresa served as a sports reporter at KPNX-TV NBC in Phoenix for two and a half years. Her association with 12 News began during her final semester of graduate school at Northern Arizona University.
Tresa holds a double alumni status from Northern Arizona University. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism at the tender age of 20. After a six-month hiatus in Europe, she returned to earn an M.A. in Communication with honors by the age of 23.
Tresa’s reporting portfolio encompasses a wide range of sports in the Valley, spanning from the Arizona Cardinals, Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona Coyotes, and Arizona State Sun Devils to high school sports all across the area. Her preferred place to be on a Friday night is in the thick of high school football action, covering it for Varsity Zone.
On Saturdays, Tresa takes on the role of anchoring sports, and when not in the anchor’s seat, she’s out in the field, reporting.
Throughout her professional journey, Tresa has had the privilege of interviewing some of the most notable sports figures in Phoenix, from Larry Fitzgerald to Devin Booker. She even had the exhilarating experience of riding in an Indy car with the legendary Mario Andretti. Notably, Arizona State’s head football coach, Herm Edwards, extended his well-wishes to Tresa on-air as she began her tenure at Arizona’s Family.
When she’s not on the job, Tresa is a newlywed, cherishing moments with her husband, stepdaughter, and their dog, Slugger Brady. She actively participates in her church and seizes opportunities for volunteering whenever possible.
