Victoria Spilabotte is a general assignment reporter at FOX 11. She’s always in the field working out of a news van to cover the most important stories of the day.
Victoria landed her dream job at FOX 11 in the winter of 2015. It was a homecoming for Victoria who grew up in the Los Angeles area.
Her journalism career began after graduating from the USC Annenberg School with a degree in broadcast journalism and international relations.
Victoria's first news job was as a reporter at KGET, the NBC affiliate, in Bakersfield California. She won an Emmy for a story she did about a youth mentorship program in state prison. Her next job took her to Las Vegas as an anchor and reporter for the ABC affiliate. She spent three years covering stories that made national headlines including OJ Simpson’s re-trial hearing for armed robbery.
Living in different cities and building her journalism career was an invaluable learning experience, but there’s no place like home. That’s why Victoria jumped on the opportunity to move back to Los Angeles and join the team at FOX 11. Victoria’s first college internship was at the station so getting hired as a reporter was a full circle moment for her.
Victoria married her high school sweetheart and they recently welcomed their first child. She loves spending time with her family, which includes her rescue pup Milo. Victoria's interests also include food, travel and animal rescue.
Victoria takes great pride reporting in her hometown and informing viewers on issues that matter to them. If you have a story idea, email her at Victoria.Spilabottet2@foxtv.com.
