Alika Medina joined KOB 4 as a reporter in March of 2023 but she was no stranger to the KOB 4 team. She’d already been an associate producer with the station in 2022.
“I had the chance to work at KOB 4 as part of the New Mexico Local News Fund program. It was a great way to apply what I learned and grow my skills.”
Alika graduated from UNM in 2022 with a degree in multimedia journalism and a minor in mathematics and is now busy putting her experience to work. She says there is nothing like reporting for her community.
Alika was born and raised in New Mexico and says one thing she will never get over are the beautiful skies during the summer.
When she isn’t reporting New Mexico’s news, Alika says she spends her time with family, two cats, is frequently at the gym and… “I guess you could say I also have a hobby of burning my food.”
