Chelsea Irizarry joined the NBC Nebraska News team in March 2016.
Chelsea Irizarry graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism. As a student, Chelsea worked for the Emmy Award-winning, student run cable TV station, UMTV. She worked as Social Media Coordinator, General Assignment Reporter and Studio Technician for the show UMTVPulse.
