Olivia Vidal joined the KPLC News team in July 2011.
She graduated from LSU in May 2011 with a degree in broadcast journalism and a minor in Spanish.
While at LSU, Olivia was involved with the University's student run news station Tiger-TV, working as an anchor, reporter and producer. She also served on the executive staff for the LSU chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. During her time at LSU she interned at WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge. Of course, going to the football games are some of her favorite past times. She considers herself an expert when it comes to tailgating and cheering on the LSU Tigers!
Olivia grew up in Mandeville and attended Fontainebleau High School. Living in Louisiana her whole life, she is no stranger to good food or good music. She's played violin for the past 13 years. Although she grew up playing classical music with the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra, she enjoys venturing to the dark side by playing fiddle music on her hot pink electric violin.
Along with violin, she also enjoys listening to all types of music and looks forward to Jazz Fest every year.
Olivia enjoys making beaded jewelry, painting and spending time with friends.
