Alyssa RamosMultimedia Producer
Alyssa Ramos is a multimedia producer for WLRN’s Morning Edition.
She graduated May 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Florida.
Her writing career began in front of her grandfather’s split-pea green typewriter where she crafted mysteries à la Nancy Drew. Eventually, she began to sharing the lives of real people.
As a Filipina American who grew up in rural Central Florida, she aligned her interests: covering communities of color in Southern spaces.
Alyssa is an advocate for local news after spending more than four years covering the heart of North Central Florida as a reporter and later on as TV20’s weekend producer in Gainesville.
She was also a fellow for the Asian American Journalist Association’s VOICES program, during which she traveled across the state to explore the Asian American diaspora’s relationship with agriculture.
In her spare time, you can catch her tending to her house plants, cooking random recipes, curating playlists on Spotify and long boarding – weather permitting, of course.
NewsOn Election Day, WLRN heard from some first-time voters about their experience participating in their first presidential election. WLRN caught up with those first-time voters after the election to reflect on casting their votes in a historic election.
