Alicia Nieves joined CBS 3’s Eyewitness News team as a general assignment reporter in February, 2017.

Previously, she was a Washington, D.C. correspondent for KTVX-TV, the ABC station in Salt Lake City, Utah.

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.”
