Vanessa Ybarra joined the News1130 team as an evening traffic anchor in January. Now you can hear her bright-and-early reporting traffic on the weekends. After earning her Broadcast Journalism diploma from BCIT, Vanessa began her career at Country 107.1 FM in Abbotsford as a weekend news anchor. Thirsty for the city life, she moved from her hometown of Cloverdale to Vancouver this past December and has loved it ever since (especially no longer battling the Port Mann Bridge). When off-air, she’s also a writer for BC Homes Magazine. Her definition of a perfect evening? Mexican food, a smooth Shiraz, and Mad Men!
