Ezzy Castro joined News 6 in December 2017 as a general assignment reporter.
She was born and raised in Miami, but her family is originally from Nicaragua. Her love for journalism came while she was still in high school and led her to the Connecticut School of Broadcasting and Florida International University. Ezzy got her foot in the door by interning at WFOR CBS4 in Miami in 2011, taking all the steps she could to further her dream. She later worked behind the scenes in production and in the news department as an associate producer and a weekend assignment editor, and even became an instructor for her Alma Mater, The Connecticut School of Broadcasting- Miami campus. She believes working behind the scenes gave her a strong foundation for being the best, most well-rounded reporter she can be. By 2015, Ezzy moved her talents in front of the camera, working as a multimedia journalist and reporter for KBMT 12News in Beaumont, Texas. There she tackled general assignment reporting while covering major events, including Hurricane Harvey in 2017.
Ezzy then moved back to her native Florida and her dream city of Orlando in December 2017 to work as News 6's as a morning multimedia journalist covering breaking news and Getting Results!
Ezzy is also a Press Club Awards recipient for continuing news coverage. She has interviewed a number of celebrities, including Demi Lovato, Kylie Jenner, Eva Mendes, and Prince Royce but her passion is telling the stories of the people in our community.
During her off time, she likes spending time by the pool and going on spontaneous adventures with her dog, Oreo. She also loves to drink coffee!
