Cristin Severance is the Team 10 Troubleshooter at 10News. If you have a problem—let Cristin troubleshoot it! She's known for getting results and creating change in the community through her consumer investigations. Her passion is helping consumers by alerting them to scams, recalls and rip-offs.

Her reports have led to major changes in San Diego from helping to get legislation introduced to make sure school fire alarms are up to code around the state, getting changes in hundreds of cash registers in California so consumers won't be charged twice and busting local dollar stores who were caught selling drug paraphernalia to kids.

In Cleveland, Cristin did several investigations into the illegal activities at Ohio massage parlors. The parlors were eventually raided by the Ohio Attorney General's Office and shut down. She was also one of the first reporters to shed light on human trafficking issues in Northeast Ohio through a series of in-depth and exclusive reports.

Her career includes being a reporter and anchor at WINK in Fort Myers, Florida; weekend anchor at WKBN in Youngstown, Ohio; and reporter/anchor at WDTV in Clarksburg, West Virginia.
