Katie Coronado is a journalist and an instructor of broadcast journalism. After working in both English- and Spanish-language media more than 13 years, NSCM appointed her to the instructor position in 2011. Her area of specialization is in broadcast journalism with a focus on Hispanic media. She currently teaches news writing as well as on-air delivery. As part of her commitment to educating the next generation of journalists, she launched the university’s first Spanish-language product, Knightly Latino, which offers students an outlet to cover issues of interest to the Latino community in both English and Spanish. Her work led to the creation of the first Hispanic Media Certificate at UCF.
Some of her interests include researching the current state of media in Cuba and Latin America. She recently led a group of student journalists to Cuba to produce a multi-media project in collaboration with students at the University of Cienfuegos. Coronado received a Partners of the America’s grant that allowed her class to travel abroad in 2018.
Her recent appointment as Special Advisor for Latin America and media for UCF’s Global Perspectives office has brought her back to television. As part of her assignment, Coronado is co-host of the Central Florida PBS affiliate program about international topics, Global Perspectives.
Her freelance work includes voice overs, multi-media content production, transcriptions and media consulting for U.S. and Latin American media corporations.
Additionally, Coronado is co-editor and chapter author of the first academic textbook about Hispanics in Media in the U.S. titled: LatinX Voices, Hispanics in Media in the U.S. which is now available to universities through Routledge publishing.
