Stephanie Muñiz grew up in New Mexico, went to college at NMSU, and launched a career as a local television reporter in Yakima, Washington.

Now she’s home again — a reporter for KOAT Action 7 News.

Sephanie Muñiz speaks with Aldo Juraldo about the connection journalists feel when they have roots in the community they cover.
