Carlos Saucedo is thrilled to call the Central Valley his new home. A California native, Carlos grew up in Montebello, a city just east of Los Angeles.
Before joining the ABC30 Action News team in August of 2011, Carlos was a reporter and bureau chief for KWTX News 10 in Waco, TX. During that time, he covered stories from the largest U.S. military base in the world, including the aftermath of the Fort Hood massacre. Prior to this, Carlos also briefly reported for WVLT in Knoxville, Tennessee through RTDNA's Rob Sunde Fellowship.
Carlos's educational background bridges the feud between long-time rivals: UCLA and USC. While at UCLA, Carlos received his bachelor's degree in political science with a minor in public affairs. After graduating, he took his passion for politics to the nation's capital and got his first taste of news while working at the BBC. There, he helped cover stories from around the nation, including the 2008 U.S. Presidential primaries. Realizing he wanted to stay in news, Carlos returned to L.A. to pursue a master's degree in broadcast journalism from USC's Annenberg School of Communications. During grad school, Carlos interned for CNN and worked at KFSN's sister station, KABC.
When not chasing the latest story, Carlos enjoys running, meeting people and watching a good movie. He is also a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. Carlos is committed to the people of the Central Valley and the stories that make them unique. Feel free to email him with a story idea or just to say hello.
