I am Natalie Van Hoozer, a journalist based in northern Nevada and a graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno, with BA degrees in journalism and Spanish.
I report in Spanish and English and work as a bilingual immigration reporter for Reno Public Radio (KUNR) and Noticiero Movil.
I am also an ambassador in the United States for SembraMedia, an international nonprofit dedicated to supporting Spanish-language digital media natives.
Researching the current landscape of Spanish-English bilingual media in the United States, I recently compiled my findings from the last year into my Honors thesis at the UNR.
At the beginning of October I also reported at the Online News Association National Conference and profiled Spanish-language reporters.
In September 2016, I spoke at the ONA national conference on a panel titled Latinos and the 2016 Election: Reporting on Communities Regardless of Your Background.
For the spring of 2017, I studied in Madrid, Spain, and documented my travels on my blog, Nat Sounds.
