Desiree Fluellen


Desiree Fluellen joined the FOX 10 News team in March of 2021.  She co-anchors FOX 10 AZAM on weekdays starting at 4:30 a.m.

She and her family are thrilled to make the Phoenix area their home.  
Desiree started her television career in her hometown at WKBW-TV in Buffalo, New York. She spent three years at the station working as a traffic, entertainment and general assignment reporter, as well as a fill-in anchor.
In 2016, Desiree landed an incredible opportunity in one of the nation’s top television markets.  She joined NBC10 in Boston in August 2016 as the weekend morning anchor and a weekday reporter for NBC Boston’s Weekend Today.  While there, Desiree spent time covering multiple Nor’easter storms, political rallies at the State House, court proceedings surrounding Aaron Hernandez, and many other important local and national stories.  She also covered the Boston Celtics, Red Sox and Bruins, New England Patriots and the Boston Ballet.
In 2018, Desiree moved to Nashville to join her husband, David Fluellen Jr., while he was playing for the Tennessee Titans.  She was hired by WSMV-TV as a reporter and anchor.  While anchoring one weekend morning, a mass shooting took place at a Waffle House.  The devastating national story rocked the community and Desiree covered it extensively for her station.  It is certainly something she will never forget.
Desiree moved to Phoenix in 2020. In March of 2020, she and her husband became proud parents as their son was born in Scottsdale.
Desiree, a native of Lockport, New York, graduated from Lockport High School in 2009. Her hometown is roughly 30 miles north of Buffalo, New York.  She majored in journalism at Buffalo State College and, at the age of 20, received her B.A. in Journalism with a concentration in Political Science and Economics.  Desiree was an economics tutor and a contributing author to "The World of Economics," during her time in college. 
When she’s not working, Desiree loves spending time with her family.  She enjoys riding ATVs through the desert, hiking, trying new food and organizing!  If you see her around town, say hello!
