About Moderator Nancy Alvarez

Nancy Alvarez joined the WFTV Eyewitness News team in May 2010 and currently co-anchors Eyewitness News Daybreak.

Her family is from Cuba, and she was born and raised in South Florida but considers Orlando a second home. In fact, she's spent most of her career in central Florida.

Her first on-air job was as the Brevard County bureau reporter for Central Florida News 13. Then it was on to WKMG where she spent five years as a reporter and received two Emmy nominations for her work in the station's investigative unit. At both stations, she had the thrill of covering several space shuttle launches and landings at the Kennedy Space Center.

She was also in central Florida for Hurricanes Charley, Frances and Jeanne, reporting nonstop during the now infamous 2004 hurricane season.

After leaving the area for three years, Nancy returned to Orlando and started with WFTV. She became moderator of WUCF's NewsNight in 2019.

When she's not working, Nancy enjoys spending time with her husband, son Benjamin, and daughter Julia. Their favorite spots include Cocoa Beach and a local hang out on a lake in Clermont.
