Victor Oquendo is a correspondent for ABC News based in Miami. Prior to joining ABC News, he worked at the WPLG affiliate for almost a decade as a reporter and anchor for its weekly evening newscasts. A versatile journalist, he has covered some of the biggest stories in South Florida. He helped lead WPLG’s reporting when the United States restored diplomatic relations with Cuba, traveling to the island to cover Pope Francis’ and President Obama’s visits. In 2016, Oquendo tracked Hurricane Matthew up the East Coast, offering gripping live reports from the field as well as powerful interviews with those whose homes were devastated by the storm. In 2018, he covered Hurricane Michael as it tore through the south east. Outside of the U.S., Oquendo has reported multiple developing stories from Puerto Rico and Central and South America. With the 2019 Puerto Rico protests against Governor Ricardo A. Rosselló, Oquendo reported ongoing updates deep within San Juan. He also followed the crisis in Venezuela along the border with Colombia and the earthquake in Guatemala that took the lives of more than 100 people. Oquendo started his broadcasting career in sports, working as the weekend sports anchor. He covered all of South Florida’s professional and college teams, reporting on the Miami Heat during the LeBron James era including runs to the NBA Finals in 2010, 2011, and 2013. He also did a feature story on Miami Heat forward Chris Anderson, interviewing Anderson’s estranged mother at his childhood home, revealing a side to the man, who’s mostly known for his tattoos, that few had seen. He graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in broadcast journalism and international studies. « Read Less
