Victoria Garcia

Digital Media Producer

United States

Hello!

I am a Digital Media Producer actively seeking an employment opportunity under the political and business reporting helm of broadcast and digital news. After graduating from Montclair State University with a degree in Journalism and a Political Science concentration in the turbulent Spring of 2020, I finished the virtual end to my undergraduate career with one goal in sight: to work in a fast-paced newsroom that aims to convey the facts right and produce thrilling reporting.

As a bilingual Cuban-American living right outside of New York City, I am seeking a career opportunity in a team setting that emulates the diversity and intense work ethic I have grown up to know and love.

I am currently a Clip Desk Video Producer at CNBC, where I work closely with show units, producers, and the Assignment Desk for multi-platform video distribution across domestic and international bureaus.

Please find my resume below.
