Reporter - KSLA
Priscilla Borrego is KSLA’s newest addition to the station! Before joining the KSLA team, Priscilla oversaw two programs for the 2nd Bomb Wing’s Legal Office at Barksdale Air Force Base. Currently, her active-duty husband is stationed at Barksdale.
Priscilla landed her first TV job in Rapid City, S.D., where she was a reporter and anchor at KOTA. She covered local impactful stories, military affairs, treacherous weather conditions, and customized two lifestyle segments.
She then ventured into a local non-profit organization, where she was exposed to the importance and value of adoption. During her time there, she made sure to keep up with her communication skills. She created local public service announcements, hosted public events to assist in garnering donations, and started contributing reading content for a local parent magazine publication.
She also spent a few years at the State’s Attorney’s Office working in the juvenile department, assisting the chief deputy attorney in termination of parental rights. She credits her time here as one of the most impactful moments in her careers.
Priscilla received her bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Central Oklahoma, where her first gig as a student reporter was writing for the school’s newspaper and anchoring their daily newscast. Priscilla is excited to make her way back into the news industry and tell stories that show the beauty of the ArkLaTex communities, to bring awareness to mental health issues, and to showcase the stories that lie within our backyards.
Priscilla wasted no time getting to know her community upon arriving in Louisiana. She's a huge advocate for volunteering and giving back and encourages everyone to do what they can to help make their area a better place to live. Her relationship with Christ keeps her grounded and helps her navigate through life’s valleys and mountains. She's quick to point out that His timing is always spot on, and always has a purpose.
When she’s not reporting, you’ll find her elbow deep in dirt, learning new ways to reap a better harvest. Priscilla considers herself a “seasonal developer.” With every growing season, she incorporates a new crop to study and takes pride in cooking with the produce she grows. She's always seeking tips and tricks in navigating different soils and zones, as she aspires to learn more about agricultural.
Priscilla has two children who keep her busy and bring out the best in her. She describes them as being the “light of her life” and is very devoted to empowering their dreams and ambitions. You can also catch her and her family shopping at her local farmer’s markets supporting small business owners and trying to adapt to the humidity!
