Multiplatform Digital Producer, NBC Universo and NBC Telemundo
Gabby is a journalist and a proud alumna of Florida Atlantic University. While she worked towards her International Business degree, Gabby dedicated her free time to Student Media, starting as a volunteer at Owl Radio, quickly becoming the station's Business Manager, and eventually being appointed as Owl Radio Station Manager. Following her term as Station Manager and during her senior year, she was also News Anchor and Reporter for Owl TV, Contributing Writer for the University Press, and Programming Assistant and Digital Producer at iHeartRadio, Inc.
At Owl Radio, she hosted and produced the first on-air show in Spanish, "Blending Homes" and the first Owl Radio morning newscast "Owl Radio News with Gabby Alvarado." Gabby also led the update of Owl Radio’s automation and remote-reporting technologies, as well as the establishment of the 1st Annual Owl Media Day; a day to showcase the many involvement opportunities offered by all three student media outlets.
Among Gabby's news coverages for Owl Radio, Owl TV, and the UP, are the FAU State of the Students Address, the University Budget and Appropriations Committee deliberations, the 2015 Student Government Elections, and the 2015 College Broadcasters Inc. Convention from Minneapolis, MN.
Currently, Gabby manages all digital and social media production, strategies, and activations at UNIVERSO (NBC Universal's Hispanic cable network). She has also been a digital producer for NBC Telemundo’s special coverages in 2016 and 2017, such as the Republican and Democrat National Conventions, Presidential Debates, Election Day, Inauguration Day, and the impact of hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the 11/19 earthquake in Central Mexico. She’s also part of the digital and social media team for Premios Billboard, iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina, Premios Tu Mundo, and the Latin American Music Awards.
Gabby graduated from FAU in December of 2015 with a BBA in International Business and a minor in Political Science. She received her first News and Documentary Emmy Awards Nomination in 2017 for her participation in Telemundo's coverage of the 2016 Presidential Election.
Gabby wishes to continue her career in digital, news, and content production for television and digital platforms.
