Grecia Aguilar joined "13 On Your Side" as the Bureau Chief Reporter assigned to El Centro. She graduated from San Diego State University in 2011 with a degree in Journalism and Spanish.
During her senior year in college, Grecia interned at Cox Media for a local magazine show, "Shades of San Diego." There, she realized she wanted to work in broadcast news but knew the field demanded a "one-man band." So, she enrolled at San Diego City College where she served as Anchor/Reporter for Newscene, a student-run newscast.
During this time, Grecia also interned for NBC7 San Diego where she got her first taste of "the real world" of what's like to work in television news. Grecia shadowed several NBC7 reporters who taught her valuable lessons in field reporting.
Grecia is a fitness fanatic. During her spare time she is at the gym, pumping iron or training Muay Thai. She enjoys watching UFC fights, traveling, dancing or catching up on the latest bodybuilding magazines.
If you see her around the Valley, don't be shy, say "Hi!" She loves to make new friends.
"I love the close-knit community. Everyone is really close, friendly and approachable."
Grecia is thrilled to be a part of the "13 On Your Side" news team. She may be new, but she takes her role as a Reporter seriously and truly cares about the community.
