Roberto Roldan is a reporter with WUSF News, after serving as an intern in spring 2016.
At that time, he was a senior at the University of South Florida pursuing a degree in mass communications and a minor in international studies.
He has previously worked with the Tampa Bay Times, WMNF and The (Louisville, Ky.) Courier-Journal, where he covered the wedding ceremonies in Kentucky of plaintiffs in the historic same-sex marriage case before the U.S. Supreme Court. In Tampa, he's covered everything from violent crime in Tampa’s university neighborhoods to the local music scene.
When he's not out reporting, Roldan enjoys seeing local bands and spending time in the outdoors.
