Tianna Mañon is a reporter at WXXI news. She’s covered issues like the presence of plastic in the Great Lakes, the death of Trevyan Rowe and the impact of the opioid epidemic in the inner-city.

Tianna is also the Editor in Chief of Open Mic Rochester, a local online magazine serving Rochester’s black community.

Passionate about using various forms of media to tell the story, Tianna enjoys simply getting out of the newsroom and talking to people. When not at work, Tianna can be found reading a book in her home library, at the Public Market or otherwise exploring the region.

The Rochester Fringe Festival is two weeks away and already one show is sparking serious conversation. Lee Wright leads the First Inversion choir and they have a show in the festival dedicated to African American spirituals. But recently, some in the community called out Wright for what they say are anti-black images.
