Hey there! This is Steph Martinez and here's a little bit about me (in that weird third-person style)...

A native of Barranquilla, Colombia, Stephanie is a four-time Emmy-nominated news reporter at Univision in the Greater Los Angeles area. She previously worked as a reporter and the 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm newscast anchor at Univision in Raleigh, NC. Stephanie also worked for Voice of America in Washington, DC, producing, editing, and reporting daily national news stories for TV and the web. Her daily tasks also included live TV news updates for international affiliates and reporting daily news feeds for two international radio stations. As a freelance reporter at WZDC Telemundo Washington for almost four years, she covered top stories ranging from controversial immigration issues to heated political topics brewing on Capitol Hill.

Now back to me...

A few years ago I embarked in this journey to create a different brand of news, News Quickies. A brand that incorporates news, social media, lifestyle, creativity and people. A brand that pioneers the way how news is delivered and consumed through social media. Who said news can't be fun? News quickies are short, fun and casual video explanations of today’s top headlines. They have a conversational tone, deviating from traditional news outlets and styles.
