Connect With Vania Castillo

I can proudly say that I am an El Paso native.

The sunsets, the food, and the people compare to no other.

I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a dual degree in Multimedia Journalism and Digital Media Production.

I have always been interested in telling stories and it was my love of filmmaking that brought me into the world of news. Desperate to get my hands on a camera I stumbled into my first internship at KVIA. The rest is history.

Since then I’ve been a reporter at KTSM, freelanced for the Associated Press, and a fellowship with VICE.

I’ve always said that I’ve been fortunate enough to have two great loves, journalism and film. My goal is to bridge the divide with every story I tell.

Every day I fall more in love with my city and believe me when I say it is the greatest privilege to tell the stories of the very community that raised me.

What can I say? This is home.

Have a story idea, or just want talk movies with a film buff? I’d love to hear about it! Contact me at, as well as Facebook and Twitter.
