Adrianna Iwasinski has left News 9…

11:12 AM EDT on May 15, 2017

It just got a little easier to pronounce all the last names in the News 9 phone directory.

Adrianna Iwasinski – a 20 year veteran of the Oklahoma City news media scene – has left News 9 and is relocating to Orlando, Florida to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a stage show performer at Disney World.

For those who didn't know, long before Adrianna was a breaking new crime reporter, she was a song and dance prodigy at OCU. A recipient of the famed Scaramucci Performance Scholarship, she danced and dazzled her way to the hearts of thousands in her role as Maria in the school's 1995 production of West Side Story.

Okay, that part is a lie. Adrianna is actually moving to WKMG 6 in Orlando for an "amazing opportunity" to be an investigative reporter in a larger market with a better climate that isn't in the middle of a dire budget crisis. Adrianna celebrated the move on Twitter in the most Adrianna way possible:

That's what I like about Adrianna. She's like Alley Meyer's quirky sister. I'm not sure if it was intentional or not, but she never took herself too seriously. Whether it was an apartment fire, bank robbery or drive-by shooting, she treated every crime story with zest and enthusiasm and sensational fun. Plus, she got us to watch a couple of episodes of Whodunnit?

Here are some more tweets:

Hey look! Joe Dorman!

Anyway, we wish Adrianna the best of luck in sunny Orlando. Hopefully she'll buy us drinks at the TLO Blogging retreat at Universal Studios this summer. We can't afford Disney.
