Ivany Villalobos joined the KYMA News 11 team on July 2017. She's a San Diego native that has over five years of experience in the news industry. She began her broadcast career as an intern for Fox 5 News in San Diego and quickly climbed the ladder to become a studio technician employee.
Ivany graduated from San Diego State University and received her bachelor's degree in Television and Film production. During her time in college and Fox 5, she simultaneously attended San Diego City College journalism program, Newscene. Her journey has brought her here to Yuma where she will be joining Vanessa Dillon at the desk for the Morning Sunrise newscast.
When Ivany isn’t at the desk she’s usually home cooking some classic Mexican dish while listening to her favorite podcasts from either NPR or The Joe Rogan Experience. And If she’s not home well that’s because she’s out with her best friends singing to some karaoke classics.
Ivany is very excited to be working at KYMA in Yuma and is looking forward to the many news stories to come. So if you have any send them her way. Feel free to follow and reach out on her social media pages:
