Vicki Gonzalez is a Murrow and Emmy award-winning journalist with nearly 15 years of experience as a reporter, news anchor and producer.
Prior to her role as CapRadio’s Insight host, Vicki spent five years as a reporter at NBC’s Sacramento affiliate KCRA, where she produced daily assignments, special reports, breaking news and a documentary. She also worked as a reporter, news anchor and producer at KSNV-TV in Las Vegas, KXFV-TV in Texas and KABC-TV in Los Angeles.
In 2021, Vicki’s reporting was part of two regional Edward R. Murrow awards at KCRA3. Vicki’s field reporting on the Bear Fire, part of the North Complex Fire, earned best newscast. And her coverage of rampant unemployment fraud within California’s EDD was part of best continuing coverage.
In 2020, Vicki’s reporting earned a Regional Edward R. Murrow for the documentary Return to Paradise, which follows four resilient families for a year after the Camp Fire — the deadliest wildfire in California history.
In 2019, Vicki won two Regional Emmys, including one for the half-hour special Hope, Humanity and Housing, which looks at the health disparities of affordable housing and those experiencing homelessness.
In 2018, Vicki’s reporting on the Oroville Dam spillway crisis, Santa Rosa wildfire, Las Vegas mass shooting and the transgender youth series, Now I Am Me, was part of KCRA 3’s National Edward R. Murrow award for News Excellence.
Born in Los Angeles, Vicki is a California native and proud of her roots. Her abuelos (grandmother and grandfather) are from Guadalajara, Mexico, her grandmother from Kobe, Japan and her English grandfather was born and raised in Kolkata (Calcutta), India. She is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and a member of Mensa International.
Vicki loves calling Sacramento home with her husband and cats. When she’s not working on Insight, you can find Vicki at the farmer’s market, floating down the American River, on the Jedediah Smith bike trail or bouncing around local restaurants. Outside of town, Vicki is usually exploring the endless trails, lakes and rivers Northern California has to offer.
