Lynda Figueredo joined WECT as a general assignment reporter in June 2008. She is happy to be living and working near the water, after spending four years away from the ocean.
Lynda recently joined us from Gainesville, Florida where she was an evening anchor, reporter, weather forecaster and producer for WUFT-TV. While in Gainesville, she also worked at WCJB-TV, as a general assignment reporter and desk assistant. Lynda spent a summer working in the Big Apple as a production assistant and intern at ABC News Now, and has also interned with WESH-TV in Orlando, Florida.
Lynda is a proud Florida Gator, who recently graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelors of Science in broadcast journalism, and minors in leadership, business administration and Spanish. Just days after moving to Wilmington, Lynda saw a baby gator in the river and knew this was a perfect fit! Go Gators!
When Lynda is not out telling your stories, she enjoys exploring the Port City, spending time with her Chihuahua-beagle "Chloe", family, friends, and her love in Florida. If you have a story idea, or just want to chat please don't hesitate to email Lynda.
