At WVLT, Lorena covered a wide-range of stories from the 2011 tornadoes that devastated the community, the 2012 Presidential Campaign to undocumented immigrants fighting deportation. Lorena also became involved with East Tennessee’s Centro Hispano, a local non-profit organization serving the hispanic community.
Lorena continues to cover it all at WSVN.
