Introduction :

Gasia Mikaelian is known as a proud Armenian-American news personality who currently works as the lead anchor for KTVU in the California Bay Area.

Personal Life, Parents & Family :

  • Mikaelian was born on July 4, 1975, in the greater Bay Area.
  • Her parents had emigrated to the United States shortly before her birth, in search of a better life.
  • Though they were happy to be in America, her parents always made sure to bring their Armenian heritage to the forefront.
  • As such, Gasia and her siblings all had traditional names and attended a Saturday School for Armenians throughout their entire childhood. She was often given strange looks when she introduced herself in school.

Education : Qualifications, High School & College Info

  • Although most of her fellow students already had plans for their career, Mikaelian did not discover she wanted to go into journalism until she was nearly out of high school.
  • Putting two and two together – she was good at reading and writing – she decided to study something in the English field.
  • She first went to junior college in Las Positas. There she gobbled up English courses, learning along the way that she loved journalism.
  • After two years, she applied and was accepted to San Diego State University. There she started studying journalism, initially wanting to get into radio broadcasting; however, she ended up being a broadcast journalist.

Family : Husband & Children

  • After meeting and marrying Paul Perez in 2006, Gasia considered taking his name professionally, so that it would be easier to pronounce and market.
  • However, she eventually decided that she would continue using her maiden name, that she had used for her 31 years of life till then, thus embracing her Armenian roots.
  • The couple has two sons together, Tigran Perez (born in 2008) and Zaven Perez (born in 2010).
  • Both her sons too have traditional names and are well-versed in the Armenian language.
  • Gasia has said that going back to work after giving birth was the hardest thing she had ever done as she suffered from major guilt over leaving her children.
  • After six months of dealing with different nannies, it was decided that Gasia’s husband would remain home with the boys to raise them. For this, she refers to him as ‘Saint Paul.’

  • She has said she used to watch the TV guys at KFMB, but at the time she wanted to stick with radio. In 1997, the station began making cuts from their radio division, and Gasia decided to transition from radio broadcasting to television, just to ensure she would still have a job. After being there for a year, Mikaelian moved to Huntsville, Alabama, as WAFF-TV hired her.

10 thoughts on “Gasia Mikaelian KTVU, Age, Husband Married, Wiki Bio, Birthday, Salary”

  1. I have come to the realization that I watch the morning news on KTVU because of the chemistry between the members of the news team.

    I love the interaction between Steve and Sal. It is good to see Mike co-anchoring with Gasia. They are a great team. Gasia, to me, brings believability to the stories. It must be a gift or it would not stand out. It doesn’t even look like she uses a prompter. She is very real. Some days it looks like she barely made it to work on time and didn’t have time to look perfect (to me that is the most perfect) and other times she is absolutely beautiful. KTVU, hold into her. She is golden and will elevate your program.

  2. I believe Sal Costenada…gosh I hope to spell it right.

    Sal I think is a key team member. Others take for granted his genuine reliable work and his
    effort which is so consistent is reassuring in a way like a place or something familiar and he is very respectful to Gasia as she is to him and it two people I know and trust to be honest. These two and the others are who they just appear to be.

    I’m not a compliment-giving person but today I realize they have earned it. CONGRATS

  3. Even The Man Jesus Christ was hated by most back then! So even though some people hate Gasia… HER BEAUTY AS A WHOLE WILL SHINE AS LONG AS LIVES! I love Gasia, she brings extra energy that KTVU needs!

  4. I love Gasia!!! We need someone who is outgoing since most of the news is bad news. She is very beautiful and needs some youthfulness on the news. I love KTVU

    1. Gasia is of course beautiful and very appealing as a professional as she is very open direct in her job and for me the group all interact well actually they interact best in business and somebody we not see is doing a very good job.

  5. SJ Native - KJ is a sucka

    What? You seem to be the dramatic one, you’ve nauseated me, I can’t stomach you, and nobody cares what you think. Sucka.
