As a Producer in PHL17’s Creative Services Department, Bianca has produced countless commercials and show promos, worked on PHL17’s 50th Anniversary Show and is a proud producer of Weekend Philler. You may recognize her as the host of Bianca’s Bike Tours in the show.

Bianca has received two Emmy nominations, and two Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters Awards for her work on Weekend Philler. She is a story-teller at heart and loves coming into work every day to do her dream job – producing, editing and sharing videos.

Brought up in the suburbs, she first moved to Philadelphia as a film student at Temple University where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Film and Media Arts and also discovered her undying love for the city.

When she’s not producing video, Bianca likes to keep the creative juices flowing by bike riding around Philly, playing piano, making scrapbooks and juggling.
