Paloma Villicana joined the WAFF 48 sports department in June of 2018 and is more than excited to work in a state so passionate about college football. Being a daughter of a former football player and coach, and with a birthday that always falls on Super Bowl weekend, football is just in her blood.
Paloma is originally from San Diego where she began her sports reporting career at KUSI 9. She went on to follow her sports broadcasting dreams by moving to Texas where everything, including the football, “is bigger”. She graduated from Texas Christian University with a B.S in sports broadcasting and a minor in Spanish. At TCU, she was a sideline reporter all four years with TCU Football. During college she interned for two summers at Spectrum Sports Los Angeles as a production assistant covering the Dodgers, Lakers, and Galaxy. In Dallas, she also worked in production with Fox Sports Southwest, the Rangers, and the Cowboys.
After college, she continued to follow college football by moving to West Virginia to cover WVU, Virginia Tech, and Marshall. While she was a sports reporter at ABC 4 WOAY, she learned the tremendous passion the state of West Virginia has for their WVU Mountaineer football. To her, there is nothing better than seeing an entire state so excited for their college football.
So nonetheless, Alabama is the perfect place for Paloma. She is ready to see the college football rivalries up close and truly find out why “It Just Means More” in the SEC! Paloma is passionate about sharing sports stories that will inspire young athletes in the community to continue to work hard and follow their dreams.
