Angelina Salcedo to Join WXIA in Atlanta

By Kevin Eck 

Angelina Salcedo will be joining Atlanta, Georgia NBC affiliate WXIA on April 29 as a multi-skilled journalist.

Salcedo comes from Tegna sister station WTSP in Tampa where she is the weekend morning anchor and lead evening reporter.

“Angelina joins 11Alive at a time when the station is prioritizing local reporting that is highly relevant to the lives of the Atlanta audience,” said Carol Fowler, WXIA director of content. “Her passion for covering diverse communities fits perfectly with this mission.”


Salcedo grew up in Boston as a first-generation Dominican American. Her dad is an anchor for Encuentro Latino and her mom anchored for more than 20 years at WBZ in Boston. Her brother is a sports reporter at WCVB.

“It’s important to me to highlight all voices in the communities we serve, which in Tampa is often my native language of Spanish,” said Salcedo. “I’ve focused my reporting on communities plagued by gun violence. By diving deeper into crime trends, I’m able to identify the issues causing upticks in crime. I look forward to doing this kind of impactful journalism in Atlanta, too.”
