Gloria Rojas: Trailblazing Latina Broadcast Journalist

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Gloria Rojas, Trailblazing Latina Broadcaster, Dies at 82:

Gloria Rojas, who was billed as New York City’s first Latina broadcast journalist when she was hired by WCBS-TV in 1968, and who went on to work as a journalist for every major network affiliate in the city for 23 years, died in Cambridge, Md. She had moved to Maryland in 2012.

In 1974, after working at other stations in New York and Chicago, Ms. Rojas was recruited by Al Primo, the innovative news director who created the ethnically and racially diverse hometown “Eyewitness News” format on WABC-TV, at a time when even women newscasters were still something of a novelty.
