Jorge Avellán joins WMYD-20, a Granite Networks MyNetwork TV affiliate, as a reporter. This is Jorge’s crossover job into English-language news.
Jorge was one of the casualties when Equity Media shut down their Detroit Univision News operation. Born in Nicaragua, he was raised in San Francisco. He started out as a photographer and reporter for the KEYL1-TV, the Univision affiliate in Amarillo, Texas in 2004 and a year later moved to Detroit for a job as a reporter at Univision station WUDT-TV 23.
