Christina Garcia is a reporter for WLOX News. She started her career in 2011 as a Web Producer for WLOX.com, and eventually expanded her work to include a TV segment on weekend events called Weekend Whereabouts.
Garcia is a avid news hound and is always looking for stories that South Mississippians need to know. She has also a played a pivotal role in organizing the state's annual United Way campaign.
Before joining WLOX, Garcia graduated from the University of South Alabama with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications and a minor in Political Science.
Garcia is of Filipino and Irish descent and was born in Oxford, CA. She spent a few years living in Jacksonville, FL, and in Athens, Greece because of her father's work as a Seabee. But for most of her life, she's called South Mississippi home. She attended St. John Elementary and High School and later graduated from Harrison Central High School in 2005.
She's now a married mother of two, and always looking for a good story idea. If you see her out or on Facebook tell her what you'd like to see on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
If you have a heart for helping the elderly or disabled a new business on the coast is looking for you. On Thursday W.R. Community Services held a job fair at the West Biloxi Library.
