Esperanza Gutierrez joined the 12 News team in May 2016. She began as a Quintern, then a part-time employee while in her senior year of college and now a full-time multimedia journalist with the station.
Esperanza graduated from Marywood University in May 2017 and received a bachelor’s degree in Communications Arts and Broadcast Journalism, as well as a minor in Public Relations.
She is a member of the Society of Collegiate Journalists (SCJ) and a member of the National Communication Association Lambda Pi Eta.
She is also from Harpursville, NY.
Esperanza loves meeting new people in the area and being able to tell a story. She enjoys the outdoors and especially cheeseburgers. If she’s not at work you can catch her out trying new things with new people.
Two fun facts about her are that she is of Cuban-American decent and is bilingual.
