Three years after the earthquake and tsunami in Fukushima, Japan destroyed a nuclear power plant, the effects are still being measured.
Bri Valdivia has been with KJZZ since September 2010 and became the the producer for Here and Now in July 2011.
While a student at Arizona State University, Bri served as Station Manager of KASC. She hosted news programs, a morning show and produced a television documentary on families dealing with autism.
In addition to her producer duties, Bri also creates much of the news break music for KJZZ. She draws from local artists such as Kinch, Saddles and Jimmy Eat World. She also uses music from artists such as Franz Ferdinand, Belle and Sebastian, Paul Simon and any odd cover song she can find.
A San Diego transplant who has lived in the Valley for a decade, Bri has a Broadcast Journalism degree from ASU’s Cronkite School of Journalism. She also has an admirable collection of coffee cups, despite the fact that she doesn’t drink coffee.
