Bilingual MMJ Reporter Reel
Anchor | Producer | MMJ Reel
Since June of this year, I've been the main news anchor and producer for Noticias Univision Kansas (KDCU). Monday through Friday I'm in charge of producing and presenting the 10 o'clock newscast, proofread scripts for reporters and teach and train an intern. I also schedule and produce an immigration segment every Monday with an attorney where we answer viewers questions, and I produce a weekly family education segment. I also manage the station's social media pages and publish local content to the website.
Before being promoted to the news anchor and producer role, I was a weekday multimedia reporter for Eyewitness News (KWCH) and Noticias Univision Kansas (KDCU). My duties included turning stories on a daily bases in English and Spanish that were shot, written, produced and edited by me. After stories made air, I was responsible of putting them on the web and social media pages, with a well written article.
Being bilingual has helped me get exclusive interviews and tips for our stations on breaking news and daily stories. I also assist other reporters to help translate in person or via phone when they encounter a Spanish speaker.
I graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University with a focus in broadcast media and a certificate in Special Event Management in May 2015.
