Brontë Sorotsky is excited to join the KOAM news team as a Multimedia Journalist.

Brontë was born and raised in Los Angeles and spent the last 4 years living in San Francisco. There, she received her bachelor’s degree in Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts (BECA) at San Francisco State University. During her time there, she worked as a reporter for YR Media, where she focused on San Francisco’s housing crisis and had her radio pieces air locally.

She also got the opportunity to intern at KTVU FOX 2 in Oakland. Most recently, Brontë freelanced for the Associated Press on Election Night.

When she’s not reporting, she enjoys riding her bike and going on picnics!
