Maria Elena Vizcaíno, who served as editor-in-chief of The Reporter during the 2016-17 school year, has landed a full-time reporting position at Bloomberg, a national business publication.
Vizcaíno, 23, began the position on Jan. 13. She will cover the mining and metal market at the New York bureau.
“I’m really excited about this opportunity to learn from some of the best people in the industry,” Vizcaíno said.
Vizcaíno interned at Bloomberg from September to November, covering municipal finance. She also served as a breaking news intern at The Dallas Morning News this summer, and previously interned at the Orlando Sentinel.
She also served as the director of enterprise of The Daily Tar Heel, the student newspaper at The University of Chapel Hill at North Carolina, before graduating with a bachelor’s degree in journalism.
During Vizcaíno’s time as editor-in-chief at The Reporter, the Florida College System Activities Association awarded her first-place for in-depth reporting for a story about a student who was killed by her father in a murder-suicide.
