Joangel Concepcion became a reporter/photographer at News10NBC in February of 2012.
One of her most memorable stories so far, is reporting live from Newtown, Connecticut in the days following the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre.
A week after the tragedy, she covered the Christmas Eve ambush where two West Webster firefighters were shot and killed while responding to a fire. The team coverage won an Edward R. Murrow award for Best Breaking News Coverage.
Joangel made her way up from McAllen, TX where she worked as a general assignment reporter/photographer at an NBC affiliate. She reported directly from our borders, covering the threat of spillover violence from Mexico. Aside from reporting about the war on drugs, cartel violence and immigration issues, Joangel also reported on several concerns that affected the Latino community in South Texas.
Joangel graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia. She reported and anchored for the award winning student-run newsroom "Temple Update." She also interned at NBC 10 Philadelphia.
When Joangel is not out covering stories, you can find her cooking, working out and exploring the town!
Joangel's family is from the Dominican Republic and she was born and raised in Miami, FL. She is thrilled to call Rochester her new home!
