COLUMBIA, S.C. — Victoria Samuels is a multi-skilled journalist at News19 WLTX. She joined the team in June 2023.

During her time in the valley, she anchored the sports show on Cronkite News/Arizona PBS and anchored the Los Angeles Cronkite News/Arizona PBS show.

In her free time, Victoria loves being with friends, traveling, playing golf and going to the beach.
