Overcoming Obstacles with Carlos Saucedo | The News Director's Office


KTLA reporter Carlos Saucedo is currently training to compete in the Spartan Race— a rigorous course fraught with challenging obstacles, which is not unlike Carlos’s own career. Raised in Montebello, Carlos’s broadcasting career began as a reporter and bureau chief in Waco, Texas. Carlos reveals that he was actually fired from that position, and it brought him to a crossroads where he considered giving up on his dreams of telling stories.

He persisted, and landed a job back in California at a news station in Fresno. Eventually, Carlos achieved a goal he once thought unreachable: Working as a broadcaster in Los Angeles, and sharing stories in the community he grew up in. Now, Carlos hopes to give encouragement and inspiration to the next generation of future journalists.
