Anjelicia Bruton is a digital journalist for WRBL. She was born and raised in Tallahassee, Fl. Anjelicia is usually seen covering stories in Fort Benning and Sumter County.
Anjelicia decided to stay close to home and attend Florida A&M University (FAMU) where she graduated in the top 10% of her school and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Broadcast Journalism.
While there she reported, anchored, and produced for News 20 at 5 and for the online news magazine, Paradigm News. She is also part of National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), and Kappa Tau Alpha National Honor Society.
Anjelicia was part of Paradigm News first online team where she produced in-depth stories. She also hosted an election night special for the 2016 presidential election.
Looking for more experience, Anjelicia interned with WCTV, Tallahassee’s number one news station with coverage of North Florida and South Georgia.
She served as the online editor for Journey Magazine leading the team to receive the Society of Professional Journalist (SPJ) Sunshine Award for Best Publication.
Bruton also produced a documentary, “It’s Knot Time Yet,” which took a close look at why millennials are choosing to postpone marriage. Her documentary was one of six that was chosen to be in “JSchool Journals,” an event open to the public to showcase the students’ documentaries.
Being of Jamaican descent, Anjelicia wanted to bring stories to her audience that effect people worldwide. Anjelicia became the first student to have their own segment on the News20 newscast. Her segment was called “Bruton’s Brew” where she reported on international and national news over a variety of topics.
