Lexington's  Carmen Montes pursues her career with Univision

The Nebraska Latino-American Commission commends and deeply appreciates bilingual news anchor and reporter Carmen Montes’s dedication to her goal of “giving a voice to the voiceless” throughout her career in Nebraska. Carmen grew up in Nebraska, graduated from Lexington High School and the University of Nebraska-Kearney with a degree in Broadcasting and Interpretation/Translation with a minor in Criminal Justice.

While employed as an anchor and reporter at KHGI-NTV News the past seven (7) years, Carmen has demonstrated her commitment to educate and inform the rural Nebraska Latino communities of local and national news in both English and Spanish. Carmen also launched a first of its kind Spanish webcast, reaching thousands of viewers on social media sites—an unprecedented task in rural Nebraska.

Carmen has recently accepted a position with Univision-Portland in Oregon, but her imprint on Spanish media in rural Nebraska will continue for years to come as she has already opened doors for other Spanish media outlets and bilingual reporters in our rural towns.
