JULIA LOPEZ


Sports Anchor/Reporter



ABOUT ME

Since I was four years old, I've been playing sports. Having grown up with an older brother I learned how to hang with the guys. I'm a second-generation sports broadcaster and practically grew up in the newsroom. In a nutshell, sports broadcasting is my passion.

After playing soccer for 16 years and softball for 8, I knew that if I wasn't able to play sports for a living, I still wanted to be around it every day.

When I was a junior in high school I interned at KOB TV in Albuquerque, NM. Every Friday night right after practice I'd rush to the station to help shoot, edit and write high school highlights. The adrenaline rush of having a deadline kept me coming back.

In addition to KOB, I've interned at ESPN's headquarters in Bristol, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area in San Francisco and was a multimedia journalist for KPNX in Phoenix.

I got my first on-air experience at Colorado State University as a sports anchor/reporter covering college football and basketball. Once I graduated, I moved to Phoenix to cover high school football.

After football season, I moved to Greenville, SC to become an online sports host/news correspondent for a startup company called OneMinuteNews.

From South Carolina, I spent nearly 3 years in Northern Nevada as a sports anchor/reporter. While I was there I covered events that ranged from rodeos all the way to professional sports and everything in between, which include college sports and PGA Tours.

I spent a year in Denver at 9NEWS (KUSA) as a sports anchor/reporter/host covering the preps scene. I anchored weekend mornings and hosted a weekly show called the Prep Rally, where a local high school team would be a guest on the show.

Now, I'm in Fresno, CA at KSEE24 & CBS47 where I've been covering everything from high school sports to the pros. I anchor/report/host 5 days a week and have been sent out on big assignments including the NCAA Tournament.
