James Torrez was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida but joins us straight from Gainesville, where he graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Telecommunications-News.
During his time at UF, he won multiple student and professional journalism awards and traveled to San Francisco to compete in the National Hearst Journalism Awards competition.
James was a top 40 radio host for WYKS-FM in Gainesville, as well as a producer for a news/talk station WSKY. He entered the news/reporting route because he believes everyone has a story and he loves to be the one that tells them.
James is very into the outdoors and athletics, especially soccer, volleyball, and basketball, but he loves watching any sport on TV.
