Lubbock, TX

Melanie Camacho joined KCBD NewsChannel 11 as an MMJ/Reporter in March 2019 and is excited to be reporting in the Hub City!

She comes from Miami, Florida and graduated from Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.

At Emerson, she had the opportunity to work in the newsroom there for RTDNA student chapter, WEBN. There, she picked up a camera for the first time and learned how to report on stories, which led to her covering a couple of snowstorms, the Parkland high school shooting that devastated the country, the 2017 Boston Marathon and the 2017 Academy Awards in Los Angeles. She was also accepted to the Emerson Los Angeles program where was able to study and intern at E! News. She also later interned at E! News in New York City.

Melanie is eager to find and tell Lubbock’s news and tell the community what’s happening in the area.
