Natalia Zea’s passion is telling stories that take the viewer deep inside our community. Whether the focus is on local government issues, crime, or positive highlights of South Florida her hope is that the viewer not only learns something, but also feels something from the story.

Natalia arrived at CBS4 News in October of 2006. During her time in South Florida she has broken public corruption stories, covered big breaking news events, and has gone in-depth on community issues in many neighborhoods including Liberty City, Little Havana, and Pompano Beach.

She was honored to win the “Community Impact” award from the South Florida Association of Black Journalists.

Natalia previously worked at WOAI-TV in San Antonio, TX. She covered Hurricane Katrina from New Orleans- before, during and after the storm, and she broke a story about faulty firefighter equipment that led to sweeping changes in that city.

Natalia began her career working for KDBC-TV, the CBS affiliate in El Paso, TX. During her time there, she crossed the border into Ciudad Juarez, Mexico dozens of times to cover the heartbreaking stories about the string of serial rapes and murders of low-income women in that city, as well as drug violence, and immigration issues.

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Natalia grew up in the colder climate of Denver, Colorado. She graduated from the University of Colorado-Boulder with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and a minor in Political Science. She misses snow-covered mountains, but loves Miami’s beautiful beaches, and warm weather.

Natalia enjoys spending time with her family including her adopted black labrador pup. She also spends her time hosting and taking part in numerous community events, volunteering, playing pool, and listening to music.
