Connect With Jeanette Quezada

Hello Bakersfield!

My name is Jeanette Quezada. I am a bilingual, multimedia, multiplatform journalist.

I am a Texan by birth, and Italian at heart. I was born and raised in Dallas Fort Worth and am thrilled to join KBAK/KBFX family to inform the Central Valley and share your stories.

I have been in the newsroom since I graduated from Texas Christian University’s Bob Schieffer College of Communication in 2015.

In 2017, I worked as a multiplatform reporter at KEZI 9 News, an ABC affiliate in Eugene, Oregon. There, I covered a wide range of stories ranging from wildfires to interviews with Gov. Kate Brown on a visit to a local clinic impacted by cuts to CHIP funding. I also interviewed U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden when he visited with DACA "dreamers" at the University of Oregon.

Earlier, I worked as a consumer investigative producer for NBC and Telemundo, where I mediated consumer complaints from viewers. I also communicated with public officials and company spokespeople to gather details and assist viewers in resolving their complaints.

I believe in the power of storytelling. I believe your stories matter. I believe your stories are powerful and valuable because they form a tapestry of narratives that connects us as humans and help shape history. My goal is to use journalism as a platform to enrich, educate, and inform you, my viewer.

When not on air, I enjoy a good read, exploring the Golden State, and catching up with friends and family.

If you have a story idea or want to say hello, I would love to hear from you.
