Mariana Domingues joined the KWQC-TV 6 News team in July of 2017.
Mariana graduated summa cum laude from Syracuse University with a B.S. in Broadcast & Digital Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and a minor in Spanish. In college, she was a news brief anchor at CitrusTV, a student-run television station, as well as a news and weather reporter at CitrusTV Noticias, the station’s Spanish language program. She also worked for TheNewsHouse.com, where she received an Associated Collegiate Press Award for a multimedia piece about women in STEM. During her last semester, she was a reporter for Mornings on the Hill, an award winning morning news program produced by students.
In March, Mariana was a reporter fellow as part of the 2017 UNC-CBC Diversity Fellowship program at WRAL-TV in Raleigh, NC. There, she worked with a photographer to report a package and served as an anchor on one of the fellowship newscasts. In the summer of 2016, she was able to explore one of her dream cities while interning at WCBS-TV in New York City.
Mariana has a passion for traveling and says this stems from her international upbringing. She was born in Brazil, grew up in Florida, and spent many years living abroad in the United Arab Emirates and Portugal. When not working on a story, you’ll find her outdoors getting to know the Quad Cities or learning how to cook. She also enjoys photography and poetry.
If you would like to share a story idea, talk about traveling, or recommend a bike or running trail in the Quad Cities, please reach out to her!
