Alicia Nieves joined CBS 3’s Eyewitness News team as a general assignment reporter in February, 2017. Alicia came to CBS 3 from WNEP-TV in Scranton, Pennsylvania where she had been a reporter and back up anchor since 2015. Previously, she was a Washington, D.C. correspondent for KTVX-TV, the ABC station in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Alicia began her career at WBNG-TV in Binghamton, New York in 2013. She is a 2010 graduate of the University of Central Florida where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in radio and television broadcasting with a minor in political science. She went on to earn a Master of Arts degree in broadcasting and digital journalism from Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication in 2014.

Alicia’s journalism career was inspired by the events of September 11, 2001.  A native New Yorker, she was in class at her high school just down the street from the World Trade Center as the Twin Towers collapsed. “On that day I learned how important the news is at a time of crisis, she says, “how people rely on us for accurate information. I think about that every time I report.”

Alicia is a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists as well as the Society of Professional Journalists.
