Hello, everyone! I am excited to join KOLR10/KOZL as a general assignment reporter and anchor of the Saturday 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts on KOLR10 and KOZL.
I come to Springfield from Lima, Ohio where I was the weekend anchor and reporter for just over a year. Before that I was a web content producer in Lexington, Kentucky..
I am originally from Brazil, and moved to Kentucky with my family when I was 13 years old. I grew up speaking Portuguese, and learned English and Spanish after moving to the U.S. I now consider the Bluegrass home, and love horse racing. When I am not working, I enjoy working out, the outdoors or just reading a good book.
I attended high school in Lexington and received a Journalism degree from the University of Kentucky. My journalism career started at the university's newspaper. I fell in love with TV news while taking broadcast courses and reporting for the Journalism School newscast.
What I enjoy most about reporting is telling stories that matter to people and their communities. If you have any tips or story ideas, don't hesitate to send them my way at jabreu@KOLR10.com
