When taking into account the most acclaimed journalists in America, the name Marci Gonzalez is bound to pop up. She has been in the media for more than a decade as she is armed with more than fourteen years of work experience.
Gonzalez currently works with the ABC News Corporation as a news reporter, she joined the team in 2013. However, before joining ABC, she has performed a range of journalistic duties at other media outlets. One of the notable news outlets Marci has worked for was WABC-TV, an acclaimed media firm in New York City.
Marci Gonzalez Kick Started Her Reporting Career With Several Internships
Gonzalez’s decision to become a journalist was one she made when she tried to get into the University of Central Florida. Her chosen course of study was Political Science and Journalism and by 2004, she had started to look for jobs in news houses. Her first stop was at WOLF-TV, which is a virtual channel that is affiliated with Fox television.
She started to work at this News station in June of 2004 and was there for three months, leaving in August. Then she moved to the Central Florida News station where she worked as an intern but stayed on for 3 months after the completion of her program. It is believed it was during her stay at these stations that Marci gained the experience she would need at her next job.
She Got Wide Recognition Reporting on the Haiti Earthquake in 2010
After several months of working as an intern, Marci Gonzalez moved to New York City in 2005 in search of better opportunities. As fate would have it, she started to work at the News 12 Network, based in the Bronx. Here, she worked in the capacity of a reporter and anchor. This was her first full-time employment but Marci only worked there for a year.
By the following year, she moved back to her hometown, Florida. Her relocation happened because she was hired by WPTV-TV, a news station located in West Palm Beach. She worked at this station for four years. During her time at WPTV-TV, she covered the 2010 Haiti earthquake. She had to fly into Haiti with a camera crew and report on the devastating event from the scene. She also went back to the region on several other occasions to report on the aftermath of the disaster especially the outbreak of cholera in the region.
The work she did during that period earned Gonzalez wide publicity and paved the path to another job. More so, in 2011, Gonzalez covered a lot of high profile news stories and high-level documentaries that WABC-TV, located in New York, developed an interest in her and eventually hired her. However, she barely spent two years at WABC-TV, when she moved on to take a job at ABC News in 2013.
