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.

She was a reporter assistant at News 12 Long Island, working alongside veteran news Anchor/Reporter Drew Scott. There, Chelsea received hands-on experience by learning how to put news packages together, write scripts and work under extremely tight deadlines.

Simultaneously, Chelsea was interning for the FOX Business Network in New York City. She learned what skills are necessary to get a show on air as well as the importance of teamwork and effective communication.

After both internships came to a close, she accepted a position at FOX News Channel as a freelance booker and guest coordinator. Chelsea learned the pressures of working in breaking news situations and became a part of the America's News HQ family.

Outside of work, you can find Chelsea going for a long run or doing yoga. She loves adventure and to travel! Please feel free to reach out through email, Facebook or twitter to share story ideas or to just say hello!
