Gina Romero is a lifelong Alaskan who grew up in various parts of the state to include Bethel, Aniak and Talkeetna.
She graduated from Susitna Valley High School and then attended the University of Montana where she majored in journalism with a minor in political science.
After graduation, she came home to Alaska and interned at KTUU. From there she was hired as an Associate Producer and then eventually, the Newshour Producer. In her time at KTUU, Gina was there when the first microwave and satellite trucks arrived, produced coverage during the 2001 Sept. 11 attacks and vividly remembers the 7.9 Denali earthquake in 2002.
Gina has worn many hats in the industry over the years and has worked at different television stations in Anchorage. She has produced political coverage at all levels, coordinated town hall productions and has taken the lead on several award-winning specials. Notably, she was part of a team who won a James Beard Foundation Award in 2017 for a series exploring food security in Alaska.
Outside of work Gina enjoys camping and traveling with her husband and two kids.
