Noreen Jaramillo Reporter
Noreen Jaramillo's return to television comes on the heels of 17 solid years in journalism. Throughout her career, she has been fortunate to receive nearly 60 awards for journalistic excellence, including nominee for 2001-2002 “Best Anchor” Emmy Award for her coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Noreen has also received New Mexico Broadcasters Association Awards and Edward R. Murrow Awards. She was also named the recipient of the 2008 Texas Council Child Welfare Board Broadcast Media Award for reports featuring children in the El Paso area in protective custody, who were in need of an adoptive family.
Noreen also spent time working as the public information officer at the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA), serving as spokesperson and media liaison for the state agency, while also promoting New Mexico’s multibillion dollar agriculture industry.
The El Paso TV market is no stranger to Noreen. She worked here as an anchor/reporter for 13 years before leaving the Sun City for three years to take a job with KTVU-TV in San Francisco, California, one of the largest TV news markets in the nation.
However, her journalism career started in Roswell, New Mexico, where she was hired as a reporter after graduating from Eastern New Mexico University with a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication.
Noreen is a proud native New Mexican, raised in a small farming community south of Belen, New Mexico, where her mom and dad owned and operated a dairy farm. She feels blessed to have two homes, the area she was raised with her family and El Paso. Her husband and two kids consider El Paso home as well.
Noreen has spent the majority of her time in El Paso delivering the news to its wonderful people; a responsibility she doesn’t take lightly. She is honored to be back on the anchor desk, especially during the morning news at KTSM.
