Gabriela Vidal joined CBS2 and FOX28 in July 2017 as a reporter covering the Johnson County area. She is excited to begin her career in Iowa.
Gabriela was born in Orlando, Florida, but grew up outside of Chicago. Eventually, she took her sights to the West Coast and went to school at the University of Southern California. There, she graduated Cum Laude in Broadcast and Digital Journalism and International Relations. During her time in college, she interned for a variety of outlets including NBC Dateline, Telemundo, and Fandango. She also spent a semester abroad in London, England, where she fell in love with international reporting and European culture. She also spent most of her college career working as an anchor, producer and reporter at USC’s award-winning Annenberg Media Television Station, and has covered everything from the attack in San Bernardino to the 2016 Presidential Election.
Gabriela is an L.A. and Chicago sports fan, lover of wine and food, and coffee addict. When she’s not reporting, you can find her scoping out hiking trails, binging Netflix, and discovering fun things to do around her new home. She loves meeting people and hearing about new stories, so don’t hesitate to stop her on the street and say hi.
