Carmen Valencia is an Emmy and AP award winning journalist who joined KOLD News 13 in September 2020.
Carmen spent the last two years reporting in Yuma, Arizona where she dedicated her time covering immigration along the southern border like the humanitarian crisis. She loves covering underrepresented communities with a goal to create social change.
She is no stranger to our community. Carmen was born in Nogales, Arizona and was raised in Tucson. She is a proud Wildcat graduating from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor’s in Journalism and a minor is Spanish literature.
When Carmen is not out in the field telling stories - you can catch her out in nature with her furry best friend, Flor. Or eating carne asada tacos, or taking the next road trip adventure.
She truly has a passion for storytelling and believes storytellers are the bridge between two worlds.
