COMM ARTS Student lands anchoring role on "The Rundown"

February 12, 2021 - Abigail Velez, 21, a communication arts major, made her professional anchoring debut Monday, February 8, on “The Rundown,” a twice-a-week show streaming on the “All in El Paso” network.

Velez, who is concentrating in multimedia with a journalism emphasis, was contacted by network representatives who came across her online portfolio, which included stories she had written for the Logos and video packages for news and features she had worked on for UIWtv -- all done remotely from El Paso. She transferred to UIW last August and has yet to set her feet on the Main Campus.

All in El Paso has a free Roku app you can add to keep up with Velez’s work when she’s on Monday and Friday nights. See her debut as lead anchor at https://fb.watch/3xPsR4K_KS/.
