Joangel Concepcion is the latest addition to the KDFW/Channel 4 news team.
Concepcion, who comes to the station after two years at WHEC in Rochester, N.Y., will contribute to various Fox 4 newscasts beginning Feb. 17, according to a press release.
According to her WHEC bio, where she’s listed as a reporter/photographer, Concepcion reported from Newtown, Conn., in the days following the Sandy Hook elementary school shootings, and shared an Edward R. Murrow award for Best Breaking News coverage as part of a team reporting on the ambush of two firefighters who were shot and killed while responding to a fire.
Concepcion isn’t new to Texas -- she worked in the Rio Grande Valley at McAllen’s KVEO, where she reported on border and Latino issues. She got her start as an intern in Philadelphia, and has a broadcast journalism degree from Temple University.
Concepcion’s family is from the Dominican Republic, and she was raised in Miami, according to her WHEC bio. Here’s a sample of her work.
