Angelica Carrillo Wraps Up Last Morning Show
Angelica Carrillo was born in Douglas, Arizona, and grew up in Silver City, New Mexico, near Tucson. After receiving an AA in Liberal Studies from Western New Mexico University in 2009, she earned a BS in Broadcast Journalism from the University of New Mexico in 2013.
Carrillo got her start in the news industry in Oregon straight out of college. Initially, she was a multimedia journalist at KCBY CBS 11 in North Bend. She later did reports and weekend weather forecasts at Eugene’s KMTR NBC 16.
In 2016, Carrillo moved closer to home when she got the opportunity to work at Tucson’s KOLD News 13. After her first year as a multimedia journalist, she handled breaking news coverage.
As of 2021, Carrillo has co-anchored the morning newscasts with Andrew Capasso. But that only scratches the surface of her role at Channel 13.
Carrillo reported live from the ground of major occurrences, did the weathercasts, and was waking up earlier than most of the city to be at the morning anchor desk. Moreover, she was involved in producing the news coverage.
After 10 years in the business of hectic on-air schedules, she decided to take a break. Sadly, Angelica Carrillo left KOLD News 13, with her last day on the air on April 20.
Through social media posts and on air, Carrillo has repeated that she has decided to have more time for “sleeping in.” So, the news anchor is taking time off to focus on herself.
Her colleagues gave her a sweet on-air farewell. And it got pretty emotional for Carrillo and Capasso as they recalled some of their funny adventures together.
