Award-winning
bilingual journalist

Camila Fernández-Martínez, an award-winning bilingual anchor and reporter, is using her passion for storytelling to advocate for others and leave an indelible mark on viewers.

From print and radio to broadcasting, she’s found her love for keeping people informed through investigative journalism and light-hearted stories that uplift others. She was born in Barranquilla, Colombia, where her grandfather Abel González Chávez inspired her to be more than just a public figure but someone who can effect change.

Her story begins at Florida International University, where she graduated in journalism and mass communication. There she began as a staff writer at FIU Student Media, and her impact on campus and the city quickly led her to become News Director. She also wrote for FIU College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts (CARTA) News, interviewing outstanding alumni, students, donors, and faculty who are making headway in their respective fields around the world.

Her drive was key for her arrival at WMDT-TV in Salisbury, Maryland, where she discovered that her ability to tell stories in English and Spanish was vital to advocating for societal change. There she covered in-depth stories about immigration, interviewing political leaders and immigrants directly impacted by ongoing changes in federal and state laws.

She was recognized with the 2019 Outstanding Specialty Reporting by the Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association thanks to her investigative reporting on the impact of a lack of state funding available for English Language Learners and their teachers. Not only did she become an outstanding reporter but also became an anchor for Latino Flavor, a Spanish language newscast for Azteca America affiliate WGDV-LD.

Her segments highlighted stories of Latinos who are making an impact on society and vital resources. She climbed the ranks and became a reporter and anchor in the legacy station WISH-TV in Indianapolis, where she covered stories from investigative and crime, to education and immigration. Her passion for uplifting the Hispanic community led to the launch of the Hispanic Culture tab on the station’s website.

It didn’t stop there. She also launched the all-Spanish language podcast “La Voz Latina en Indiana,” where she interviewed immigrants, community leaders, and local entrepreneurs who are making an impact on the community. She even led the station’s Hispanic Culture Facebook page, where she posted stories that were translated by her in Spanish. Her work received recognition from the Indianapolis Business Journal and was reported on by the IndyStar.

Camila was also a 2023 Spectrum Award Finalist thanks to her story piece on an entrepreneur, highlighting her remarkable journey as a Latina trailblazer in the world of boxing. She’s looking forward to more adventures in this remarkable journey.
