Cinthia Maldonado joined KRDO NewsChannel 13 in September 2016. She began her professional career 12 weeks before graduating from MSU Denver.
Cinthia has a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Spanish. She’s the only Spanish-speaking journalist in Southern Colorado - she anchors Telemundo SurCo and reports for KRDO.
Maldonado is a proud Colorado native. “I’m so blessed to start my career in my home state,” she says.
While being a full-time student she worked in production at Fox 31 Denver and later became the TV host of Telemundo Denver's segment; Ventana en tu Comunidad and Acceso Total.
Maldonado's driven passion all began when she joined her university’s student-run newscasts; The Met Report and Noticiero TVMET. Her first day in the field as a student reporter, Cinthia covered a local high school student who was the victim of a hit and run. Covering that tragic story convinced her that she was destined to be a journalist and keep the community informed. To Cinthia, there's no story too big or too small to cover.
