Helen Acevedo, is WLRN's anchor for All Things Considered.

Helen Acevedo is a grad student at Florida International University studying Spanish-language journalism, a bilingual program focused on telling the stories of diverse communities. She received her bachelors in broadcast journalism with a minor in political science from FIU in December of 2021.

Previously, Helen interned at South Florida PBS, where she assisted in editing content for social media and producing stories for their ‘Your Story’ segment.

She has also interned with the STEP Univision program at FIU as well as the university’s digital paper and broadcast show, the South Florida Media Network. During her time there she was able to write and produce stories on local elections, protests, the Surfside condo collapse and the COVID-19 pandemic.
