Arianna Prothero

Arianna grew up listening to NPR. After a post high school stint in ballet, she stumbled into a public radio career through an internship at WFIU in Bloomington, IN. There, Arianna worked as a reporter, anchor and producer while earning a Bachelors degree in political science and a minor in Eastern European studies at Indiana University. 

After graduating from IU, Arianna moved to Miami and started working as a part time producer for WLRN-Miami Herald News. She immediately fell in love with South Florida and counts herself among the lucky to cover a region where the news is never dull. Arianna is now a full time producer, anchor and reporter for WLRN-Miami Herald News.

  Lawsuits challenging state bans on gay marriage are piling up across the country, and winning doesn't only rest on having a compelling legal case. Building a plaintiff "dream team" is a major component of strong legal strategy.

“You want plaintiffs who are sympathetic,” explains Nova Southeastern law professor Bob Jarvis. “In front of a jury, you want to say this could be your neighbors, your friends, your coworkers or you.”
