Bianca grew up in Oxnard, California, and went on to study Film & Media Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
There her passion for journalism was ignited as a reporter for the weekly university paper, The Bottom Line, and at the community radio station KCSB-FM. Bianca led the first ever student coverage of the 2012 National Republican and Democratic Conventions in Tampa, Florida and Charlotte, North Carolina.
After graduating college, Bianca interned for KPCC-FM in Pasadena, California, and worked for CBS Radio in Los Angeles. Her television news career began in Santa Maria, California, as a multimedia journalist for Univision-affiliate station KPMR-TV where she covered hot button issues such as immigration and labor rights. Her work in Spanish-language news continued in Monterey with Univision-affiliate KSMS-TV.
Bianca moved to KSBW 8 in Monterey, California, in 2015 and covered a wide range of breaking news from the Soberanes wild fires to the 2017 calamitous storms hitting the Central Coast. Her reporting on local and national political candidates served as a key component of the station’s Commitment 2016 news coverage.
Bianca joined KMBC 9 News in October 2018 and is excited to learn more about the city.
Bianca loves to spend her spare time at the beach with a book, travel and try new food, especially spicy food.
