Reporter | Beats: Border, Latino Communities, South Bay Communities, Sweetwater Schools

Laura Acevedo joined the ABC 10News team in April 2017 as a reporter and multimedia journalist.

During her time in San Diego, Laura has covered the U.S. border, the South Bay, and Latino communities extensively. 

Laura has a deep understanding of the complexities of these issues. She is well-connected with a variety of sources and is always looking for the next story. 

Throughout the years, Laura has done stories in San Diego that include border tours, presidential visits, the influx of migrants arriving at the border, city council corruption, and school district funds mismanagement. 

Her beats are covered with accuracy, respect, and balance. 

Before San Diego, Laura worked at KERO, the ABC affiliate in Bakersfield, California. While in Bakersfield, she covered several national breaking news stories including the mass shooting in San Bernardino, the Erskine Fire, and the stabbing at UC Merced.

Laura’s first reporting job was in Laredo, Texas. While there, she covered the immigration crisis along the border as well as corruption cases involving city and county officials. She also landed interviews with the Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, and then-presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

Laura graduated from the University of La Verne with a degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in Spanish. In college, she interned at ABC7, NBC Nightly News, and Dateline.

On her days off you can find Laura at the beach, working out, and spending time with her two Chihuahuas.
