Nicolette Perdomo, who served as editor-in-chief of The Reporter during the 2015-16 school year, has accepted a position as a multimedia journalist position at KAMC, an ABC-affiliated television station, in Lubbock, Texas. She starts June 5.
Her duties will include being live from the studio, being live on scene, reporting daily and completing stories for the 6 p.m. newscast.
Perdomo, 22, graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor of science in telecommunication in May. At UF, she reported and anchored the 5 p.m. newscast for WUFT, a PBS-affiliated television station.
“I eventually want to be a reporter in Miami, and this will be a way for me to gain reporting experience and enhance my skills,” Perdomo said. “Journalism and writing great stories have been my passion for years and I want to tell great stories for the rest of my life, so I think this new job will be great for me.”
At The Reporter, Perdomo, who graduated from Kendall Campus’ Honors College in 2016, won first place from the Florida College System Press Association in the news story category for a story she did on two Miami Dade College students who were struck by a car and killed.
“It was a great experience becoming editor-in-chief of The Reporter,” Perdomo said. “It allowed me to become passionate about writing and editing.”
