I’m a morning news reporter at KSEE 24/CBS 47 in Fresno, CA. From going live down waterslides at 6am, to covering wildfires, breaking news, shelter pups, and everything in between… this bilingual reporter is enjoying her new life as an early bird (on weekends, don’t call me before noon, though).
I’m Nathalie with an ‘H’ –pronounced like Natalie –nice to meet you.
I grew up in Lima, Peru, a coastal city in South America more populous than NYC, and dubbed “The City of Kings” by the Spaniards.
My family relocated to Los Angeles when I was young. I later moved 90 miles north to attend UC Santa Barbara, where I graduated with a B.A in English, and a minor in Spanish, (or a degree in Spanglish, as the scholars call it).
My broadcast career began in college radio –at KCSB FM 91.9 I started out as Special Projects Reporter, often traveling up to San Francisco and Sacramento to cover UC Regents meetings, student protests, university workers’ strikes, and the governor’s budget. I later served as general assignment reporter, anchor, engineer, and Assistant News Director.
My TV debut came with Univision Costa Central. I wore many hats there, too –reporter, photographer, editor, and producer. I also served as the immigration beat reporter, delivering stories of most relevance to Univision’s Hispanic audience.
I later joined KCOY-TV, the CBS-affiliate in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, where I enjoyed the beach and good weather while telling stories I care about most –social justice, crime, shelter pups, and everything in between.
I moved to Fresno right at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, serving the Hispanic audience with the Univision station in town. Now I’m at KSEE 24/CBS 47, waking up bright and early for the morning news!
When I’m not working, I’m either reading, catching up with friends, tanning at the beach, or doing marathons (binge-watching shows on Netflix, that is).
I love meeting new people, places, spaces and opportunities. Another day, another story. And somebody’s got to tell it.
