Host, Local Now
Sasha is the host of Local Now where she delivers daily local and national news to viewers all over the country.
Moving to the U.S. from Mexico City, gave her the opportunity to host several shows like "The Music Room" on CNN International, a music program which provided an in-depth look at top music groups and emerging artists from around the globe. There, she was able to interview artists such as Moby, Usher, Britney Spears, Dirty Vegas, Remi Shand, and more.
Later, she had her own show called "Detalles con Sasha" on CNN Espanol, a lifestyle show covering different topics, such as design, architecture, food and fashion from all different countries in Latin America.
Rionda has also been a correspondent for Cinecanal, a Pay TV movie channel, broadcast in Latin America. From New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, she has profiled "behind-the-scenes" movie news and newly released films, as well as interviewing top Hollywood stars such as Robin Williams, Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, Goldie Hawn, Nicholas Cage, Christian Slater, and others.
Sasha previously lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for four years where she was the anchor and reporter of "Nuestro Rincon"- a program on WKRC- to serve the Hispanic community in the tri-state which was precipitated by the station's decision to reach out to Cincinnati's growing Hispanic population.
Sasha also appeared as a guest host for the "Wild On the Beach Australia" program on the U.S. Entertainment network E! in which she reported on sports, nightlife and wildlife unique to Australia.
