Liberty Zabala



I pride myself on knowing every aspect of what it takes to get a story to air. I'm a multimedia journalist who can write, shoot, edit and report enterprise stories for three live newscasts a day. 

I cover breaking news for the NBC7 News Today morning show where I go live 7 times a day and turn another package for the afternoon shows. I also MMJ on the weekends.

I recently started anchoring weather on the weekend morning newscasts. 

I know how to set up my own live shots using a Live-U backpack or Dejero box.

I have several thousand followers on my Facebook and Twitter accounts. I actively use social media to gather information, report stories and engage with viewers. I've steadily grown my following to more than 6,000 on Twitter and more than 7,000 on Facebook. 

I have taken over my station's official Snapchat account several times to report stories from the field and engage with viewers by providing them with a behind-the-scenes experience on that platform. 

I also know how to use Content Management Systems and can regularly publish stories to the web. 

Digital Storytelling

Social Media

To promote stories, I typically cut videos and create graphics for pieces specifically designed to attract & engage a mobile audience.
