Erika Aguilar

As the new weekend reporter at KUT News in Austin, Erika Aguilar has recently inherited the environment, development, transportation and city beats. She says Austin is an inspiring city for progressive environment trends such as zero-waste recycling and green building, which make covering the city interesting.

Before KUT, Aguilar’s first media job was with the local CBS affiliate, KEYE-TV, as an assignment editor. She started working there while finishing up her last semester at Texas State University-San Marcos, where she graduated with a B.A. dual degree in broadcast journalism and history.

Aguilar says she is looking forward to meeting with science reporters and writers at the workshop and making lasting connections.
