Emmy award-winning journalist Victoria Sanchez joined ABC7/WJLA-TV on January 10, 2018.
Victoria comes to Washington from KUSA-TV in Denver. Prior to covering news in Denver, she worked as a reporter and fill-in anchor for KEYT-TV in Santa Barbara, and both KCOY-TV and KKFX-TV in Santa Maria.
Victoria started as a general assignment reporter in 2010 after working as a public information officer for the County of Santa Barbara in California for two years.
She is a proud University of Southern California graduate with a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science. Victoria also earned her master's degree in Public Administration from California State University, Northridge.
Victoria has been recognized by the Radio and Television News Association with six Golden Mike Awards.
Victoria loves spending time with her daughter and husband. She also loves to train in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, watch cooking shows and The Price Is Right. The game show reminds her of the time she won a car on the show with Bob Barker when she was in college. It’s a funny story she loves to share.
Although not a daredevil, Victoria went skydiving once – and that was enough for her!
Victoria is looking forward to serving the community with journalistic integrity and meeting new and wonderful people.
